Art of Costume Design in Film

Fashion Institute of Merchandising Museum

From the Queen Mary to the Queen of Costume Design. Film and television costume designer Ruth E. Carter is the first Black woman in history to win two Oscars. Carter won her first Academy Award for Best Costume Design for Marvel’s “Black Panther.”

And, at the 2023 Academy Awards, Carter received her second Academy Award for her work on the Marvel sequel, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”

We can see the Oscar winning BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER costumes of Ruth E. Carter now on display at the FIDM Museum in downtown Los Angeles.
