Enjoying the delights of FIDM's 10th Art of Television Costume Design exhibition...

Earlier this year I ventured Downtown to visit the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising's annual movie costume design exhibit, which showcased a wonderful array of garments from films from the previous twelve months including Oscar nominees, and earlier this week I returned for the TV costume design equivalent.

Hundreds of TV show costumes on display

If you love watching TV it's a joy to see all the costumes worn by your favourite characters on display and if you love costume design and fashion you'll get a kick out of all the spectacular clothes from all the different time periods the shows are set in.

Personally I love all the sci-fi and fantasy genre shows, so I loved seeing costumes from Game of ThronesMarvel's Agent Carter, The Man in the High Castle, Defiance, The Walking Dead and Heroes Reborn to name but a few.

There's so much to see and it's such a well presented exhibit, so if you're at a loose end this Summer pop in and take a look (then treat yourself to some lunch and a sneaky glass of wine Downtown too).

If you like the look of this special TV exhibition, be sure to check out all the movie costumes that were on display back in the Spring, including from Mad Max: Fury Road, Cinderella, Crimson Peak, Trumbo, The Danish Girl, Suffragette, Brooklyn and many more.

This may not be the last time I sneak a peak at all these costumes, as I'm sure some of my friends will like to see this brilliant exhibit too...
