Cut! Costumes and Cinema Expo

Discover the glamour, luxury and artistry of cinematic couture in this exhibition from the renowned British costumer, Cosprop Ltd and organized by Exhibits Development Group.

Forty-three costumes worn by 30 actors in 25 different films attest to the sumptuous fabrics, lavish lace and embroidery, unparalleled craftsmanship and creativity, and the essential ingredient costumes play in the authenticity of a period film. Many of the costumes have won major awards including Oscars from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and BAFTAs from the British Association of Film and Television Arts.

Visitors to the exhibition will be transported from fairy tale England (Angelica Huston, Ever After) to colonial Virginia (Colin Farrell, The New World) to 18th-century England (Keira Knightley, The Duchess) and to 19th-century Paris – fantastic and opulent – (Emmy Rossum, The Phantom of the Opera). They will enjoy the fashions of the early 20th century – of World War I Italy (Sandra Bullock, In Love and War), of seedy Shanghai in the 1930s (Natasha Richardson and Ralph Fiennes, The White Countess) and of World War II Belarus (Daniel Craig, Defiance).

SUPPORT CUT! COSTUME AND THE CINEMA Presented by Exhibits Development Group in cooperation with Cosprop Ltd., London, England. Sponsored at the Bowers Museum by Margaret A. Cargill Foundation, East West Bank, and Mei-Yen Chang.
