    FIDM x LACOSTE: 2017 Costume Designers Guild Awards


    For the fifth year in a row, LACOSTE has partnered with FIDM’s Film & TV Costume Design Students to create a dynamic collaboration. Last year, FIDM Students re-created Quentin Tarantino character looks with a LACOSTE polo as the base.


    This year, students designed fairytale costumes that incorporated the iconic polo shirt. These jaw-dropping designs debuted at the 2017 Costume Designers Guild Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

    Let’s take a look at the costumes!
