The world’s most iconic costumes from the Golden Age of cinema to the present day will have their final showing in the groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume, beginning in early October. The exhibition, organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and sponsored by Swarovski, explores the central role of costume design as an essential tool of cinematic storytelling. The exhibition will feature more than 150 costumes, including memorable designs from The Wizard of Oz, The Great Gatsby and more.
“Swarovski’s history of working with costume, jewelry and set designers on some of Hollywood’s most iconic productions goes back 75 years to when Dorothy first tapped her Swarovski-encrusted ruby slippers,” said Nadja Swarovski, a member of the Swarovski Executive Board, “so we’re thrilled to support this landmark exhibition at its new home in Los Angeles.”
The ticketed exhibition will be open to the public from October 2nd to March 2nd at The Wilshire May Company Building in Los Angeles. Tickets are available for purchase here.
