Tilda Swinton Signs Celebrity Signature-Filled Suit Going Up for Auction!

Tilda Swinton is adding her name to a star-studded suit!

The 59-year-old Suspiria actress signed costume designer Sandy Powell‘s cream calico suit, which has been signed by more than 200 stars, including Billie Eilish, Laura Dern and Leonardo DiCaprio, at Dungeness in Kent, United Kingdom.

The suit is going to be auctioned off to raise money to save Prospect Cottage, the home and garden of the late filmmaker and LGBTQ activist, Derek Jarman.

The Art Fund charity is trying to raise £3.5 million by the end of March to protect the home, with £850,000 still to go.

Sandy attended parties with a permanent marker and her “blank canvas” suit for stars to sign.

“It ended up being much more successful and fun than I ever imagined it to be,” she said.

“A lot of people didn’t know who Derek was and they looked it up and expressed an interest,” she went on to say.

“It’s a gorgeous place. When he bought it in the mid-80s some people thought he was completely nuts. It was bleak, it was deserted, there was a power station right there … [but now] it’s filled with his work, with all the books that he read, books that he wrote and his diaries,” Sandy said of the cottage.

“Of course what we dream of is that some incredibly inspired and inspiring and enlightened rich person will buy this suit and give it to some museum. It’s really important to remember that Derek was all about process, he was not really about things,” Tilda said of the suit.

The money raised will also go to fund an artistic program of residencies.
