One of the last official portraits of Bowie, released with his BlackStar album last week

It’s not often that you can use the words ‘Legend’, ‘Icon’and  ‘Revolutionist’ all for one person. However, it can be fair to say that David Bowie was probably the exception and was an individual who embodied all these descriptions, if not more.

One of Britain’s most successful, pioneering and sexually liberal musicians, David Bowie enjoyed a glittering career,  lived an eccentric life, where he did not conform to the social norms in regards to his music and especially with his fashion.

During his career, Bowie embraced many personas, first changing his birth name and then transformed into alter ego Ziggy Stardust as well as others.



His sense of fashion has been so influential and unforgettable, with many artists after him, such as Lady Gaga, Sia, Katy Perry and Prince incorporating  his sense of individuality in their stage presence.  Even Kanye West has said of Bowie  to be:

“One of the most important inspirations, so fearless, so creative, he gave us magic for a lifetime.”

In 2013, The Victoria & Albert Museum celebrated his style, where they were given unprecedented access to the David Archive to curate the first international retrospective of the extraordinary career of David Bowie. The Exhibition was called David Bowie is.

The exhibition explored Bowie’s collaborations with artists and designers in the fields of fashion, sound, graphics, theatre, art and film. It also featured more personal items of Bowie’s – some of his sketches, musical scores and diary entries, revealing and exposing the evolution of his creative ideas.


Bowie (69) passed away on the  10th January 2016, two days after his birthday, after battling cancer for 18 months. The news was confirmed on the musicians website, that he ‘died peacefully [today] surrounded by family.’

While Bowie is no longer here, he certainly leaves behind a rich legacy of music that will endure for generations to come. He also left his mark on fashion.

Bowie’s status as a fashion influencer will also extend well beyond his life.

Below are some of our favourite pictures through Bowie’s life.
