The Hollywood Costume Exhibition was organized by the A.M.P.A.S. Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences  to show a history of design in film. Among the collection with over 150 items, the Academy added more than 50 pieces from newer films, including Dallas Buyers Club, Malcolm X, American Hustle and Lee Daniels, The Butler.


Originally presented at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, The exhibit explores the central role of costume designs with some of the most memorable wardrobes in film history. Co-curator and designer Deborah Nadoolman Landis (wife of John Landis) and other organizers gave a behind-the-scenes look at the four galleries, which trace a century’s worth of movie costumes.
