Game of Thrones costumes on display at FIDM Museum...

Just as the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Downtown L.A. showcased the past twelve months of movie costume design earlier this Spring, they're currently shining a spotlight on TV wardrobes with their 10th annual Art of TV Costume Design exhibit which runs until October 15, 2016. Included in the exhibition of over 100 outfits from over twenty shows are these Emmy nominated costumes from George R.R. Martin's medieval fantasy epic, Game of Thrones.
