Supreme Style

The Story of the Supremes from the Mary Wilson Collection will exhibit at the Victor and Albert Museum until October 19, 2008. The display shows the changing image of The Supremes from the early days when they were known as The Primettes to the glamorous Hollywood designs they wore at the height of their fame. The notable designs at the exhibit include:

Garments, worn both on and off stage, from their early outfits to the most glamorous beaded costumes are on display. Visitors can see the black rhinestone-encrusted velvet gown that Diana Ross wore to her farewell performance as well as the stunning orange beaded dresses both designed by Bob Mackie, nicknamed the Sultan of Sequins and the Rajah of Rhinestones. The tropical lilac gowns designed by Michael Nicola in 1972 are also exhibited. When The Supremes performed for the Queen Mother they wore magnificently beaded dresses designed by Michael Travis. According to Mary Wilson each dress weighed an amazing 30 pounds! source
