Mary Wilson, founding member of the legendary Supremes, is proud to announce her new coffee table book, Supreme Glamour, which celebrates the fashion, glitz and glamour of the cultural icons. The book, written by Mary Wilson, is chocked full of hundreds of archival photographs, personal anecdotes, and insightful narrative text by Wilson and close personal friend Mark Bego.
Wilson has previously released two best-selling autobiographies, Dreamgirl: My Life As a Supreme and Supreme Faith: Someday We'll Be Together.
Supreme Glamour showcases thirty-two of the group's most eye-catching gowns, meticulously reassembled and photographed on the Grammy Museum stage.
Some of the gowns were designed by close friend, Sir Keith Holman, who adds his thoughts and recollections about designing gowns for the iconic group.
The book contains never-before-seen color photographs from Holman's personal collection, as well as 300+ color illustrations. Detailed captions accompany each photograph, providing information about the design, fabric, and embellishments of each ensemble, as well as the occasion on which each was first worn.
This book is a must-have for anyone interested in the fashion history of the Supremes!
Mary Wilson tells the complete story of The Supremes, both on- and off- stage, from their humble beginnings in Detroit in 1959 as The Primettes to their 1964 breakthrough hit, "Where Did Our Love Go," and from the departure of Diana Ross to The Supremes' disco hits of the 1970s.
Supreme Glamour builds a complete picture of the charm, sophistication, and magic of The Supremes.
Supreme Glamour is available for pre-order here. The coffee table book is set for release everywhere on September 17, 2019.
