Tommy NutterDesign for Elton John at Wembley, 1984

Above is a photo of the late Tommy Nutter, followed by an illustration of a tuxedo he created for Elton.

 

In fact, this suit, worn by the rocker at Wembley in 1984, will be part of the Fashion & Textile Museum's homage to Nutter, which can be viewed later this month.

 

The FTM's curator, Dennis Nothdruft, told EJW that the display will feature four costumes once worn by the Rocket Man.

 

He also said that Cilla Black, one of the people who helped finance Nutters of Savile Row in 1969, will open the show on May 19.

 

Rebel on The Row can be viewed by the public a day later. It will include images taken Tommy's brother, David Nutter, who is currently a fashion photographer in New York. In addition, there will be related events hosted by two men who worked with Tommy.

 

Timothy Everest is to hold a Highlights Tour, while Edward Sexton will offer a Masterclass in pattern cutting.
