The togs on television? Clothing is a major part of any character's story. If they wear sparkles, if they don denim, if they wear something from the past, or from the future, the viewer at home has a strong sense of where the show's arc may be headed, or, at the very least, a real insight to the person rocking the outfit.
The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising honors some of TV's top costume designers each August, September, and October, which, of course, includes Emmy season. FIDM's popular, free-to-see exhibit, "The 11th Annual Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design Exhibition," opened on Tuesday, Aug. 22.
Admire dozens of costumes every Tuesday through Saturday, through Oct. 22, at the gallery located on the school's downtown campus. What series were included in the 2017 line-up? Take a look now at some of the stellar examples of sartorial excellence.
