New exhibition at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts featuring costumes from “Harry Potter”

Later this year the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts will host an exciting new exhibition featuring costumes from the Potter series, entitled “Hollywood Costume.” This will be the United States premiere of “Hollywood Costume” in addition to being the only East Coast venue that will be displaying the exhibit. Here is a brief description of the exhibit from the VMFA website:

Organized by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, Hollywood Costume explores the central role costume design plays in cinematic storytelling. Bringing together the most iconic costumes from a century of cinema, it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the clothes worn by unforgettable and beloved characters in films such as The Wizard of Oz, The Birds, My Fair Lady, Superman, Titanic, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and The Dark Knight Rises.
