The V&A’s Theatre and Performance curators, Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh have selected more than 300 objects that will be brought together for the very first time. They include handwritten lyrics, original costumes, fashion, photography, film, music videos, set designs, Bowie’s own instruments and album artwork.

The exhibition is on from March 23rd until August 11th, 2013 and is sure to be a must for all Bowie fans, fashionistas and would-be trendsetters out there.
