The Crescent Shopping Centre is proud to provide support and sponsorship for the Hunt Museums current collection ‘Best Costume Goes to…’ an exhibition which explores the relationship between actors, costumes and the growth of the Irish film industry.

In all, 33 costumes representing 19 films and TV series are on display, some of which have been Oscar nominated. This exhibition gives the opportunity to view costumes from films and TV such as The Favourite, The Quiet Man, Braveheart, Vikings, and more. The Crescent Shopping Centre is proud to sponsor The Favourite costume…..check out the full exhibition at the Hunt Museum now.

A joint curation with the Irish Costume Archive Project, the exhibition looks at how costume co-creates the character.

Award winning Irish costume designer, Eimer Ní Mhaoldomhnaigh (credits include Whit Stilman’s Love & Friendship, Jimmys Hall, Breakfast on Pluto) co-founder of the Irish Costume Archive Project, commented, “A character does not exist without a script, and a character does not take physical form without a costume. The finest costume design is grounded in detailed research and the collaborative process between designer, director and actor.”

Gráinne O’ Rourke, Marketing & PR Manager for Crescent Shopping Centre stated of the sponsorship; “Ireland has long since had a reputation for award winning costumer designers working internationally and nationally – we are happy to support the Hunt Museum on this exhibition to allow them to shine a spotlight on Ireland’s talented craftspeople and filmmakers and also to support the fantastic work of the Hunt Museum maximising cultural & educational opportunities right here on our doorstep in Limerick”

Visitors to the exhibition will experience the narrative of costumes, understanding not just the history but the social history of a time, be that contemporary or in the past, and how people lived, not only how they dressed.

A full programme of events is coinciding with the exhibition and includes a lecture by costume designer Joan Bergin, a Film Quiz for movie buffs on 12th March at the Hunt Museum, educational workshops and the screening of Love and Friendship and Breakfast on Pluto at the Belltable.
