What’s Happening- Hollywood costume at the V & A, London

For all the movie lovers, do not miss out on the Hollywood Costume exhibition in London, which shares many iconic cinema costumes such as Indiana Jones, Scarlett O’Hara and Holly Golightly. (Audrey Hepburn in breakfast at Tiffany’s) You’ll also recognize the costumes of the following movies:

Some Like it Hot, 1959
Shakespeare in Love, 1998
Titanic, 1997
Pirates of the Caribbean, 2007

As per Deborah Nadoolman Landis, Costume designers are storytellers, historians, social commentators and anthropologists. Movies are about people, and costume design plays a pivotal role in bringing these people to life. ‘Hollywood Costume’ illuminates the costume designer’s process in the creation of character from script to screen including the changing social and technological context in which they have worked over the last century.
