Being on the ball, you’re probably already aware of it but if you haven’t seen it yet, I wanted to make sure that you don’t miss out. There are some great events too.

From ACMI’s site:

Prepare for unprecedented access to objects from the David Bowie Archive that tell the enthralling story of the boy from Brixton who became an international cultural icon. Featuring over 50 legendary costumes, original stage set designs, handwritten lyric sheets, album artwork, rare film, video and photographs and interviews, the exhibition showcases Bowie’s impact as a performer and screen star.

David Bowie is became the V&A’s fastest-selling exhibition. This once-in-a-lifetime experience is only in Melbourne for a strictly limited season, with limited capacity and no extensions possible.

Booking your ticket in advance is highly recommended. I hope to see it very soon.

So – events! Of particular interest to fashion lovers will be Mel Campbell’s talk at 1pm on the 3rd of September. Mel will be talking about how Bowie flagged his changing musical directions through the changing of his costume, and how his sartorial choices are tied to the performance of gender and sexuality. Sounds fascinating Mel, can’t wait! Full details here.
