The 13th Art of Television Costume Design exhibition is back this summer for another year of celebrating the artistry of costume designers and their teams. Television’s perpetual evolution through both network and digital platforms gives today’s designers even more opportunity to create bold, memorable characters for a variety of programming. This year’s exhibition will feature a diverse assortment of shows across several genres–science fiction fantasies, contemporary comedies, and historical dramas, to name a few–and as always will include Emmy® Award-nominated programs from the 2018-2019 television season. Look for fan favorites such as Game of Thrones, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Black-ish, plus discover the latest hits like The Masked Singer and Good Omens. You just might find your next streaming obsession!

FANtasy is a celebration of outstanding examples of fan makers’ art spanning three centuries. Recently gifted to the FIDM Museum by Fashion Council member and renowned gemologist Mona Lee Nesseth, this remarkable collection of masterworks spans the golden age of fan creativity. Famed designers ā€“ Gustave Beer, Jeanne Paquin, Paul Iribe, Adolphe Thomasse, and Gustave Lasellaz – incorporated precious metals and jewels, delicate handmade lace, fine painting, and intricately carved horn, ivory, and mother-of-pearl into these miniature works of genius. Additionally, a specially commissioned fan from France’s leading eventailliste, Sylvain Le Guen, will join the antiques and highlight the talents of this present day artisan of the haute couture. Together, these handheld artworks attest to both the skills of their creators and the connoisseurship of their collector.
