The 10th annual Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design exhibition is now open at the FIDM Museum & Galleries. Admission to the museum is free and the exhibit runs until October 15th. On view are over 100 costumes from 23 different shows, including Emmy-nominated costumes from eight television shows. I spoke with FIDM spokesman Nick Verreos and four of the Emmy-nominated designers to hear some of the stories behind the clothes.
