Sneak Peek At “David Bowie is” Exhibit at V&A
Ground control to major fashionistas! If you have already flipped through the pages of the Spring 2013 issue of Real Style Magazine, you know that we’re psyched for the latest exhibit to take over London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, entitled “David Bowie is.” Although it only opens this Saturday, March 23, 2013, this sneak peek will help get you excited for the most fashionable exhibit of the season.
It’s about time fashion icon David Bowie got his very on exhibit, and where better than the V&A for the homage to the British rocker to take place? The king of all things androgynous, the original Ziggy Stardust is getting a huge retrospective at in partnership with Gucci. Curated by the V&A’s Theatre and Performance curators, Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh, the exhibit features more than 300 objects from Bowie’s life that include handwritten lyrics, original costumes, fashion, photography, film, music videos, set designs, Bowie’s own instruments and album artwork.
Last night, lucky guests, including actresses Tilda Swinton, Kaya Scodelario and Laura Carmichael, and model Edie Campbell (who wore Gucci) got to attend a private viewing of “David Bowie is” at the V&A, but it will be open to the public as of Saturday. Be sure to check out “David Bowie is” at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, from March 23-July 28, 2013, but in the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at some of our favourite pieces.
