Undeniable Fact About ROTS #27: Tricia Biggar Honored With Exhibit, Fashion Show

By the time ROTS was released, George Lucas wanted to make sure costume designer Tricia Biggar got some recognition because the the trophy people sure weren’t going to give it (she had been nominated for the Saturns but didn’t win). So in 2005, Lucasfilm and Los Angeles’s FIDM (fashion school) teamed up to put on an exhibit of Star Wars costumes, including a big chunk of Biggar’s work for the prequels. It was a great show and I’m very glad I went to see it.

That fall, Lucas had also put on a fashion show of models in Biggar’s costumes to coincide with New York’s Fashion Week.

    I wish they’d hired Tricia Biggar for Episode VII. The guy they hired to design the costumes for it also designed the costumes for Abrams’ Star Trek films. I really have nothing positive to say about Michael Kaplan’s Trek costuming.

    I traveled to LA just to see this exhibition and went through it twice. Gorgeous stuff and shame on those awards people – including the Oscars – for never deeming Trisha’s work being worthy of even a nomination. I mean – if you’ve seen that massive book, “Dressing a Galaxy” – there is no denial. Plus her work extended to the CGI characters. Too many blue hairs are in the guilds.
