David Bowie at the V&A

Striped bodysuit, Aladdin Sane tour, 1973 by Kansai Yamamoto

By now you've almost certainly seen that David Bowie will be the subject of an exhibition at the V&A, with the show encompassing all aspects of his creative life from the early 1960's to the present day. Most excitingly, many of his original stage costumes and clothes will be on display - many on view to the public for the first time since they were originally worn. Perhaps some of the incredibly talented designers who dressed Bowie will finally get some of the attention they deserve, most notably Kansai Yamamoto and Freddie Burretti.
