‘Small but perfectly formed … the modest size and uncomplicated presentation serve to make the content more powerful still’ – The Independent
Performance artist, fashion designer, nightclub sensation, art object, aspiring pop-star and above all an icon whose influence traversed the music, art, film and fashion worlds, Bowery remains an inspiration to many contemporary fashion designers.
It is ironic for the man who was infamous for his costumes that he is perhaps best-known for his role as nude model for Lucian Freud, but this book is the definitive guide to the looks designed by and, in these photographs, worn by Leigh Bowery.
