For the first time most beautiful costumes from HOLLYWOOD will be displayed at a major exhibition, hosted at the V&A from October 20 – The costumes from Green, velvet and curtain gown as seen in Gone With The Wind by Scarlett O'Hara, to the little black dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany's are all will be displayed here.
The exhibition's senior guest curator Deborah Nadoolman Landis said that this exhibition developed from his passion for Hollywood costume design, inspiring scholarship from the glamorous Golden Age to the cutting-age digital technology of John Carter. "Hollywood Costume will focus the crucial role of the costume designer in bringing the genuine people in the story to life" he added.
The exhibition, sponsored by jewellery label Harry Winston, will carry over 100 of cinema's most famous and iconic looks, which includes Pirates of the Caribbean costume by Johnny Depp and The Wizard Of Oz costumes by Judy Garland. The showcase will be divided into three sections; the first section explores how the costume designers translate a character from script to screen; the second section explores the relationship between the costume designer and the creative team of the movie and, finally, a third section is the gallery of costumes belonging to cinema's most beloved characters.
