In this photo print, we witness a remarkable moment in music history as Elton John presents his iconic stage suit to the prestigious Victoria & Albert Museum. The photograph captures the essence of the 1970s, an era known for its vibrant fashion and groundbreaking musical performances. The stage suit itself is a true work of art, designed by the talented Bill Whitten. Affectionately named Bicycle John, it embodies Elton John's flamboyant style and theatrical presence on stage. Every intricate detail reflects his larger-than-life persona and unique fashion sense. Standing beside Elton John is Miss Ella Sommers-Cocks, Assistant Curator at the museum. Her expression exudes admiration and excitement as she receives this priceless piece of music memorabilia. This snapshot freezes a significant moment in time when music transcended boundaries and became an integral part of popular culture. As we delve into this image, we are transported back to that magical evening on March 15th, 1978 when history was made within those hallowed museum walls.

Julian Brown's masterful photography immortalizes this extraordinary event for generations to come. Through his lens, he encapsulates not only the grandeur of the costume but also the emotions evoked by witnessing such an important artifact being added to one of London's most esteemed cultural institutions - The Victoria & Albert Museum
