Alice in Wonderland arrives at FIDMвЂ™s Museum & Galleries for a one-of-a-kind exhibition featuring Colleen AtwoodвЂ™s creative costumes as well as sketches, accessories, and Alice-related collaborations from designers such as Sue Wong and Tom Binn.
On view will be a number of Alice looks worn by Mia Wasikowska in Tim BurtonвЂ™s film, along with Johnny DeppвЂ™s Mad Hatter вЂњfighterвЂќ costume, and the Red QueenвЂ™s show-stopping gown, which Helena Bonham Carter wore on the big screen.
The free exhibition is on display at the FIDM Museum & Galleries from May 27, 2010 through September 30, 2010.
Students at the fashion design school were also asked to design Alice-inspired pieces, under the supervision of FIDM fashion mentor and instructor Nick Verreos, and they will also be on display.
