Do you happen to have the dress David Bowie wore on the cover of The Man Who Sold the World (1970)? If so, the Museum of London Docklands would like a word. They're seeking Bowie's dress, Sean Connery's James Bond shirts, and other items for a forthcoming exhibition titled "Fashion City: How Jewish Londoners Shaped Global Style." From Smithsonian:
"Jewish people were working at all levels of the fashion industry in London throughout the 20th century," says Lucie Whitmore, the museum's fashion curator, in a statement. "… Many of these designers were internationally famous—favored by the rich and famous and highly respected for their creativity, skill and originality. It's a contribution that deserves to be recognized."
The museum is especially interested in pieces by the designer Michael Fish, better known as Mr. Fish. Fish is known for his gender-bending designs, perhaps most notably his "man dress," worn by celebrities like Mick Jagger and Bowie. Yasmin Rufo writes for BBC News that Fish's "gender-fluid style continues to have relevance today, as reflected in the designs worn by celebrities such as Harry Styles."
