Physical Description

Medium / Material
  • cotton

White brushed cotton, interlock printed in red and black T-shirt. Plain with short sleeves and round neck. Printed on front.
Given to donor by someone who knows a member of "The Pretenders" (a well-known pop group) who got it at the London Premiere in 1980 of the film "Fame". The film was about a drama school. It was not very popular. But in 1982, a television series of the same name and subject was shown. This was extremely popular, and the donor has seen several people in the street wearing this T-shirt.
