Film costumes open at FIDM

The 19th annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design exhibition opens Tuesday at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Downtown. The exhibit includes Oscar-nominated costumes for "The King's Speech," "The Tempest," "True Grit" and "Alice in Wonderland" — more than 20 of last year's films in all — and it's free. Here's a preview from this afternoon.
