Your guide to Philly's diverse creative scene, nightlife, music, food & more
It's official. Motownphilly is happening this January. The Supremes are coming to Philly! Well, at least their fabulous dresses are!
I had the pleasure of being invited to a preview of a new exhibition that's adding some extra sparkle and style to Philly from January 25-June 30, 2013. It's called Come See About Me: The Mary Wilson Supremes Collection.
This exhibit will showcase the trailblazing trends of The Supremes through the eyes and wardrobe of Mary Wilson, The Supremes mainstay. It's been 50 years of great music and The African American Museum in Philadelphia will highlight 30 glamorous gowns.
At the preview, Ms. Wilson told stories of gorgeous gowns and an amazing journey. She laughed about how in the beginnings of The Supremes career they were called the "No Hits Supremes." A title that in present day seems a little unbelievable due to their record breaking success and undeniable relevance to music.
So, make sure you come see about this exhibition come January!
