Todd Fisher, son of the late Debbie Reynolds and sister to the late Carrie Fisher, has teamed up with Turner Classic Movies (TCM) to host a special exhibition that will display some of the star's most memorable costumes.
The entertainment world was rocked by the loss of Carrie Fisher when she died following a heart attack on December 27, 2016, aged 60 and by her mother's sudden death, aged 84, after suffering a massive stroke the next day.
This exhibition serves as a wonderful reminder of some of the great work that Debbie Reynolds created and as proof that she was nothing if not determined. Starring in cinematic hits Singin' in the Rain with Hollywood royalty Gene Kelly and The Rat Race with Tony Curtis; Debbie worked as actress from 1948 right up until 2016.
Nominated for an Oscar for 'Best Actress in a Leading Role' for her part in The Unsinkable Molly Brown (1964) and taking home the Academy's Humanitarian Award in 2016, Debbie was one of Hollywood's most beloved icons.
Now her son, Todd Fisher, has teamed up with Turner Classic Movies (TCM) to host a special exhibition that will display some of Debbie's most memorable costumes.
Todd told People that his mother was "obsessed" with preserving her costumes along with other pieces of Hollywood history.
He said: "At one point, we had 3,000 costumes that represented every Academy Award-winning film that had ever been even nominated for Best Production Design or Costume Design since the beginning of the Academy."
He added that the collection was "burying her" financially and she was forced to auction off most of the pieces.
"The money to preserve this stuff was staggering. We were spending hundreds of thousands of dollars a year just to preserve it," Fisher told People.
Debbie Reynolds' iconic costumes will be displayed from April 6th to April 9th at the TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood.
