Cinematic Couture Tour
 
 
Cinematic Couture focuses on the art of costume design through the lens of film and popular culture. More than 50 costumes created by the world-renowned London firm, Cosprop Ltd., provide an intimate look at garments and millinery that set the scene, give personality to characters and establish authenticity in period films. The films represented in the exhibition depict five centuries of history, drama, comedy, fairy tale and adventure through period costumes worn in 24 acclaimed films, including "Titanic," "Sense and Sensibility," "Out of Africa," "The Duchess" and "The Danish Girl" as well as award-winning British television series "Pride and Prejudice," "Downton Abbey" and "Victoria." This exhibition allows you to get close to the costumes and appreciate the fine details that are often seen only briefly on screen.

The costumes in this exhibition come from the more than 100,000 costumes and accessories created by the renowned British costumer Cosprop Ltd. Founded in 1965 by John Bright, an award-winning costume designer, Cosprop specializes in costumes for film, television and theater, and employs a staff of 40 experts in designing, tailoring, cutting, fitting, millinery, jewelry-making and repair, and dyeing and printing. Cosprop maintains an extensive library and a collection of original garments used as source material, ensuring that any production undertaken by Cosprop is historically accurate. Like their period prototypes, these opulent costumes are crafted of sumptuous fabrics and decorated with intricate embroidery and lace.
