“This exhibition allows visitors to explore the creative processes behind the art of costume design while discovering the unexpected ways in which these works relate to art from the DIA’s collection,” Salvador-Salort-Pons the DIA director says of the exhibit.
Star Wars and the Power of Costume will explore the creative process through intricate sketches and full documentation on how Darth Vadar's menacing armor came to be and the fashion evolution of Princess Leia. Visitors will also have an opportunity to view videos featuring designers, actors, and concept artists to better shed some light and dark on how a team of creatives turned a concept into fantasy and eventually into reality.
