The 2012 FIDM exhibit celebrating "The Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design" shines the spotlight on a stunning array of some of the most beautiful television costume designs from the 2011-2012 season.

The exhibit includes stunning selections from the costume designs for such varied shows as "Game of Thrones," "Once Upon a Time," "Boardwalk Empire," "American Horror Story," "Pan Am," "New Girl," and more.

As the images attest, the exhibit encompasses shows from a wide range of styles and periods, from the decadence of "Downton Abbey," to the imaginary worlds of "Game of Thrones" and "Once Upon a Time," to the cool mod looks of "Pan Am," the modern gothic looks from "American Horror Story," the biker-cool toughness of "Sons of Anarchy," and the fresh, subtle retro-mod feel of the bright costumes for "New Girl."

The best thing about this gallery of images is the way we get to view the closeups of the costumes themselves, and in ways that illustrate their intricacy and gorgeous construction. The delicate pieces for "Pretty Little Liars" are masterpieces of construction, and a closer look at the costumes for "Once Upon a Time," from the stunning collar of Queen Regina's gown, to the feathers of the knight's headdress, shows that no detail was too small.
