London’s Design Museum hosts Amy Winehouse retrospective exhibition

London’s Design Museum will open an exhibition on November 26 celebrating the creativity and legacy of British musician Amy Winehouse. Amy: Beyond the Stage marks the singer’s tenth anniversary and explores her creative process, from concept to stage, from her emergence as an artist, her musical influences, her major albums, as well as the story behind her iconic beehive- hairstyle and her most memorable fashion moments. This is the first major retrospective on Winehouse and it is conceived as a celebration of the artist who left the world too soon. The exhibition kicks off at the start of her career, allowing visitors to trace her path to stardom and get to know the singer personally through never-before-seen artifacts, such as notebooks from her childhood, photographs and handwritten lyrics.

As well as a focus on her music career, there’s also a look at her eclectic style of dress through photographs and the original outfits she wore during her biggest gigs, from plain clothes to designer brands like Preen and Moschino for the 2007 Brit Awards, but also looks from designers Roberto Cavalli, John Galliano and Dolce and Gabbana.

Spanning the ‘Frank’ and ‘Back to Black’ eras, the exhibition explores how Winehouse’s style evolved from the loose hair and retro wardrobe of the early 2000s to her iconic thick eyeliner, beehive haircut and contemporary look she contributed to the launch of her second album. Visitors can also see her impact on the fashion world and meet a number of designers who have collaborated with the singer, including Fred Perry, and discover the culture behind her favorite accessories, from her popular ‘dolly pump’ shoes to hair embellishments.

At the beginning of this month, Winehouse clothing items were auctioned in Beverly Hills, including the dress she wore at her last concert. The value of that specific item of clothing was estimated at fifteen to twenty thousand euros.
