ASGLA - Teen Field Trip

Saturday, I took a group of the ASG-LA teens to the Fashion Institute (FIDM) and Michael Levine's in downtown LA. 
We started off the day visiting the Gallery at FIDM where they are now showing the Motion Picture Costumes.
The girls loved the exhibit and it was so fun listening to them discuss the costumes and gathering ideas for their future projects. This exhibit goes for another week or so, and if you are in the area, I highly recommend it.   After the exhibit we ate our sack lunches in the park on FIDM's campus.  They day was cold and gloomy, but everyone had a great time.   

After lunch, we headed over to Michael Levines which is about 6 blocks east on 9th Street from FIDM.   Most of these girls have never been in such a large fabric store.  I could see their eyes light up with ideas  looking at all the fabrics.

Everyone bought lots of fabrics and used their ASG discount.  I can't wait until our next neighborhood group meeting to see their creations!

  1. Sue, what a great idea to take them on a field trip to the garment district. Start them early!
