|road trip! (i’m serious this time)
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (in LA) just opened what sounds like a really cool exhibition — Fifty Designers/Fifty Costumes: Concept to Character — which runs until 12/5/04. They’ll be showing both the original designs and then the completed costumes for films including Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator, Big Fish, Frida, plus many others. Notice they’re also selling an exhibition catalog on site and online.
Guess I’m going to have to head for LA for this and a little fabric shopping!
Life has been INCREDIBLY hectic lately but I’ve marked out Saturday for sewing — so there will finally be updates on my 1875 afternoon dress!
