If you're a TV and costume design fan and are looking for some inspiration and a way to while away the hours you should definitely check out the new Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design exhibition at the FIDM Museum in Downtown L.A.

Not only does it feature many contenders for this year's outstanding costume design Emmy awards, like The Crown, This is Us, Feud: Bette and Joan, Dancing with the Stars, RuPaul's Drag Race, Westworld, Big Little Lies, Grace & Frankie, Hairspray: Live! and The Handmaid's Tale, but it's also free to visitors

Probably the closest I'll ever come to one of these

The exhibition opened yesterday and runs through to October 7, 2017, open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm daily at the FIDM Museum in Downtown L.A.

Back in February this year I also visited the movie equivalent of this exhibition which showcased many Oscar nominees for costume design and I also visited last year's TV costume design exhibition, and these exhibits never disappoint.

If you love seeing costumes out of reflective display cases and looking closely at all the details then you'll love this celebration of television costumes.

In addition to all the Emmy nominees there are also costumes on display from some of the previous year's most eclectic shows from different genres and time periods, like Riverdale, The Get Down, Girlboss, The White Princess, Underground, The Collection, Taboo, Marvel's Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. American Horror Story: Roanoke, The Mindy Project, Insecure, Younger and American Gods.

As you can see from these photos there's so many TV show wardrobes to enjoy and I'm sure I'll be back to look at these costumes in detail once again before this exhibit is over.

I'm sure fans of these shows will love seeing these costumes on display, I certainly do, so make sure you take advantage of this opportunity if you are able, as when are there this many costumes to see in one place than at these FIDM Museum exhibits.

After viewing all the amazing costume designs it was time for a spot of lunch and a glass of prosecco at Faith & Flower to make the most of our trip to DTLA.

Now it's time to sort though the 500+ photos and share them all on my costume and props blog for everyone to enjoy.

If I've not said it before (and I'm sure I have many times) I really do love living in La La Land and all the opportunities it affords me...
