THE MINDY PROJECT Costume Exhibit Coming to the Paley Center
In celebration of the upcoming sixth and final season of The Mindy Project, The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills will showcase the bold color palette and trendsetting style of the critically acclaimed Hulu original comedy series, in an immersive and first-of-its-kind exhibit curated by the series' Emmy-nominated Costume Designer and President of the Costume Designers Guild, Salvador Perez, that will run exclusively at the Paley Center beginning August 26, 2017.
"The Mindy Project": Six Seasons of Style Curated by Costume Designer Salvador Perez will explore the unique relationship that costumes have played in bringing the series to life, featuring costumes worn by the cast from seasons past and yet to be seen during the final sixth season. The interactive exhibit will also feature life-size episodic photography, costume sketches, and behind-the-scenes video segments that will take visitors inside Mindy Lahiri's fun, fabulous and oh-so-stylish world.
"We're thrilled to give fans of THE MINDY PROJECT the rare up-close opportunity to see the fun and vibrant costumes worn by the loveable Mindy Lahiri," said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center's President & CEO. "This exclusive exhibit is one of the many examples of the unique, artistic, and immersive exhibit experiences the Paley Center provides to visitors year round."
"Salvador Perez is an incredible artist who matched Mindy Lahiri's larger-than-life personality with couture beyond any woman's dreams. You may not approve of everything Mindy says, but you always approve of her fashion," said THE MINDY PROJECT creator, writer, executive producer and star Mindy Kaling.
"Costume designing THE MINDY PROJECT has been a career defining experience for me, I could never have imagined how magical this project would be. Looking back over six seasons and 117 episodes, I am very proud of the colorful, fashionable world I was able to create and share with the fans of The Mindy Project. This exhibit is a gift to the fans who have been so supportive all these years," said costume designer Salvador Perez.
Whether bedecked in dazzling sequined saris, to-die-for coats, or au courant gold unitards, Mindy Lahiri (played by Mindy Kaling) is one of television's most fashion-forward characters and her iconic style has added a unique and popular facet to the beloved, award-winning series. The final, sixth season of THE MINDY PROJECT premieres Tuesday, September 12 on Hulu, with new episodes streaming weekly on Tuesdays. All episodes of seasons one through five are currently streaming on Hulu.
