Outlander season two TV costumes on display at FIDM Museum...

In the second season of Starz TV adaptation of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander books, the time-tossed WWII combat nurse 'Claire Randall' (Caitriona Balfe) and her Scottish Highlands love 'Jamie Fraser' (Sam Heughan) head across the channel to the aristocratic and fashionable 18th century French Court of Paris.

These fabulous costumes from the TV series (just some of the 10,000 garments created for the second season) are nominated for an Emmy award for Costume Design for Terry Dresbach, Assistant Costume Designers Elle Wilson and Nadine Powell and Costume Supervisor Anna Lau, and were photographed on display at Downtown L.A.'s FIDM Museum on August 9, 2016.

When husband and wife 'Jamie and Claire Fraser travel from Scotland to infiltrate high society Paris, we get to see our heroine out of tartan and wearing some fabulous gowns like the ones on display at this exhibit.

During the second season Jamie Fraser may sport finer silk outfits to fit into Parisian culture, but Sam Heughan still looks pretty fine when he's wearing his tartan kilts and leather frock coat.

For Claire, the only problem with traveling through time is not only do you have to juggle multiple husbands, but you also have to wear era appropriate wardrobe too.

In the sophomore season Claire Fraser also meets another time-traveller in the form of 'Master Raymond', an apothecary in Paris in 1744. Each panel of his coat is dedicated to a different disease.
