Tommy Nutter: The Rebel on the Row at the Fashion and Textile Museum

Tommy nutter
Opening tomorrow at the Fashion and Textile Museum, London, is a new exhibition celebrating the work of Tommy Nutter, or as they call him 'The Rebel on the Row'. 

The Row they are referring to is, of course, Savile Row. Tommy Nutter is celebrated for opening up the exclusive world of bespoke tailoring in the 1960s. His impressive client list is hinted at by some of the names that are lending outfits for the exhibition, including Mick Jagger, Elton John, Justin de Villeneuve and Cilla Black, who was one of the financial backers of his business.

The Fashion and Textile Museum are always great at recreating period atmosphere and this display should be no different – they're teaming up with the tailor Timothy Everest, who worked with Nutter, and Simon Doonan, previously behind some of Nutters striking window displays, on the show.  

The exhibition runs until 22 October.
