Amy Winehouse’s Clothes and Personal Items Will Be Showcased in London’s Design Museum
On September 14, Amy Winehouse would have turned 38 years old. 10 years after the British singer and songwriter’s tragic death, the first retrospective of one of the UK’s most revered musicians will be opened in London’s Design Museum.
The exhibition called Amy: Beyond the Stage will be held in collaboration with the Winehouse family and will be curated by Priya Khanchandani. The artist’s close friend and stylist Naomi Parry also worked on the exhibition. The show details Amy’s development as an artist and the many influences that have emerged in her recordings of Frank and Back to Black.
In addition, special attention will be paid to how Winehouse combined music and design to create her image, style, and voice.
Visitors will be able to see the outfits Winehouse wore, for example, yellow printed dresses and pencil skirts from the 50s she wore with polo shirts will be displayed. The singer’s personal fashion items also include a Moschino bag, electric guitar, and notebooks with handwritten lyrics. You will also see a chronicle of how her style developed throughout her career and the subsequent influence she had on the world of music, fashion and design.
The retrospective will open on November 26, 2021, and the tickets are already on sale on the museum’s website. You can also purchase a new edition called Amy Winehouse: Beyond Black where you will find many unseen photographs and archival materials.
