Alice in Wonderland arrives at FIDM’s Museum & Galleries for a one-of-a-kind exhibition featuring Colleen Atwood’s creative costumes as well as sketches, accessories, and Alice-related collaborations from designers such as Sue Wong and Tom Binn.
On view will be a number of Alice looks worn by Mia Wasikowska in Tim Burton’s film, along with Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter “fighter” costume, and the Red Queen’s show-stopping gown, which Helena Bonham Carter wore on the big screen.
The free exhibition is on display at the FIDM Museum & Galleries from May 27, 2010 through September 30, 2010.
Students at the fashion design school were also asked to design Alice-inspired pieces, under the supervision of FIDM fashion mentor and instructor Nick Verreos, and they will also be on display.
With four dynamic California campuses, FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising is the premier west coast fashion design college, educating for careers in fashion, graphic design, interior design, and entertainment. FIDM’s graduates include renowned fashion designers like Monique Lhuillier, Emmy® and Academy Award® award-winning costume designers, top fashion industry executives, and entrepreneurs.
