Somerset, England (CNS) – The Supremes fashion is coming back. The Fashion Museum in Bath is set to host an exhibit feature costumes worn by the all-girls singing group in the ’60s.
More than 50 original stage costumes worn by the singing group will be displayed at the Assembly Rooms in Bath from July 25 to August 31. The performance outfits are from the collection of co-founding member Mary Wilson.
“The Story of the Supremes from the Mary Wilson Collection” exhibition will coincide with the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Motown Records. It will chart the evolving fashion image of the group throughout their career, from their first stage appearance as The Primettes, to their later performances as a changing trio.
It will also feature the group’s music, album covers, archive footage, and photographs.
Wilson, who will open the event on July 25, is expected to sign copies of her memoir “Dreamgirls and Supreme Faith,” on sale in the Fashion Museum bookshop.
The Supremes have had a number of members, including Diana Ross, co-founder Florence Ballard, Betty McGlown, Barbara Martin, and Cindy Birdsong.
