The Guardian reports that the V&A Museum was given unprecedented access to over 60,000 items in Bowie's collection in New York and they have brought back a range of items from across the singer's career.
On display will be more than 300 objects including Ziggy Stardust bodysuits (1972) designed by Freddie Burretti, photography by Brian Duffy; album sleeve artwork by Guy Peellaert and Edward Bell; visual excerpts from films and live performances including The Man Who Fell to Earth, music videos such as Boys Keep Swinging and set designs created for the Diamond Dogs tour (1974).
