18th Annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design Exhibition @ FIDM

Sat., February 6, 2010, was the opening night of FIDM's 18th Annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design exhibition. While attending FIDM and after graduating I never found a reason for attending this event on opening night. However this year I thought it would be fun to experience it for the first time. And let me tell you, it was great. I was only expecting to go to the museum, but they had the front of the building decorated like a red carpet event, a tent catering service and music. I wish I would have taken pictures of the party, oh well, maybe next year.

Upon arriving at FIDM we were just a few minutes early, so we got to see Monique Prudhomme (Costume Designer for The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) being interviewed by the press. I did not speak to her … I'm kind of a chicken when it come to things like that. Nick Verreos was there also giving an interview at the same time.

Here is a
