Here at Fantha Track we are always on the search for interesting and exciting exhibitions to visit. Fantha Tracker Halley Sanchez visited a must see exhibit for fans interested in the costumes of Star Wars: The Last Jedi – the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising.
Every year, the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) exhibits noteworthy costumes from the previous year’s films in the Art of Motion Picture Costume Design. The costumes on display include out-of-this-world designs from sci-fi and fantasy films, as well as the Oscar-nominated designers vying for a “Costume Design” statuette in this year’s Academy Awards.
This year’s display includes costumes from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, created by designer Michael Kaplan. Three costumes from the denizens of Canto Bight are on display, along with the armor of a Praetorian Guard (complete with twin vibro-arbir blades), and General Leia’s dress and beautiful jewelry.
A video playing nearby shows behind-the-scenes footage of the Canto Bight casino.
This exhibit is a must-see for cosplayers because one can get very close to the garments without glass in the way, and visitors are also allowed to photograph. The exhibit can be viewed for free at the FIDM Museum on Grand Avenue in Los Angeles until April 7th 2018.
