Star Of David

by Eyal de Leeuw | 21.12.12

The Garçonnière is already preparing his London trip during March 2013 for the opening of a rare exhibition at the Victoria & Albert museum dedicated to a true master of inspiration – David Bowie. The exhibition will explore the creative processes of Bowie as a musical innovator and cultural icon, tracing his shifting style and sustained reinvention across five decades.

The excitement is growing as the V&A was given unprecedented access to the David Bowie Archive to curate this retrospective exhibition which will include Bowie’s original costumes, fashion, photography, film, music videos, set designs, Bowie’s own instruments and album artwork.
