“Alice in Wonderland” is a spectacle on the screen, partly because of the elaborate, fantastical costumes the characters wear.
Fans of the film and the fashions will get the chance to examine the garments up close in a three-part exhibition beginning Thursday, May 27 at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles

Finally, Part Three brings more “Alice” inspiration with twist, but this time from FIDM graduates mentored by “Project Runway” alum Nick Verreos. Six designer grads were challenged to participate in a FIDM SuperLab project to discover their talents through the creation of couture gowns inspired by six iconic characters from the film. Zap2it will be speaking to Verreos and the FIDM grads to get an early look on their designs and follow their progress before the big reveal. So check back for updates and more pics of the designs. The exhibit is free to the public and runs from May 27-Sept. 30. For more info, visit the FIDM Museum site or call 213-623-5821.
