A student from Bournemouth University is organising a touring exhibition of original costumes worn by Sixties singers the Supremes. Yvonne Hellin-Hobbs, who is studying for a masters in museum studies, is presenting "The Story of the Supremes from the Mary Wilson Collection" at the Assembly Rooms in Bath. More than 50 of the group's original stage costumes feature in the display, all of which come from the collection of founding member Mary Wilson. The show charts the changing image of the group throughout their career. Ms Wilson said: "It's wonderful to come here and to see the Supremes' story exhibited through these gowns and other items in such a glamourous setting. It really proves that dreams do come true."
