    schema:description "Images from the Star Wars films have become part of our culture. Layered over time-honored myths and stories, these images reside in our collective consciousness and derive much of their mythic power from their detailed and artful costumes. Here, in Dressing a Galaxy: The Costumes of Star Wars, we are offered the first in-depth presentation of these amazing artifacts as well as a penetrating behind-the-scenes look at their creation. From the subtle robes of the Jedi to the opulence of royalty, the dark cloaks of the Sith to the luminous elegance of the Galactic Senate, and the harsh clothing of moisture farmers to the rigorous gear of the military, Trisha Biggar, costume designer of the Star Wars prequel trilogy--The Phantom Menace (1999), Attack of the Clones (2002), and Revenge of the Sith (2005)--takes us on a journey through the intricate process of crafting the costumes from sketch to screen and displays the dazzling results. Featuring more than 300 full-color photographs and illustrations from the Lucasfilm archives representing characters and costumes from all six films in the Star Wars saga, the focus of this stunning tour de force are the costumes of Episodes I, II, and III--hundreds of which were handcrafted for each film. In addition to the astonishing costume presentations, animated computer graphics characters are displayed in their virtual costumes as well. Commentaries by Samuel L. Jackson, Jimmy Smits, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, Natalie Portman, and other actors offer memorable insights on what it was like to don these brilliant creations. Accompanied by an exhibition at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) Museum and Galleries at FIDM in Los Angeles, this unique visual treat is a must-have for and Star Wars fan. Every costume is displayed in exquisite detail, showcasing Trisha Biggar's visual exuberance and dedication to craft. For the veteran or novice costume or fashion designer--and for all lovers of beautiful and fabulous fabrics, Dressing a Galaxy provides a bountiful feast."@en ;
