FIDM spokesman Nick Verreos says that costume designers are there to make you believe. There’s a lot to believe in at FIDM Museum and Galleries’ 25th annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design. It’s an annual LA tradition that brings many of the year’s most fascinating costumes into public view. Verreos gave us a tour of some of the highlights of this year’s exhibit. Listen to our interview with Nick Verreos below.
