David Bowie, Fashion Chameleon, Dies at 69 - WWD


Designer Keanan Duffty, who was also part of that culture growing up in the U.K., said: “David Bowie offered me the opportunity of a lifetime — a chance to collaborate on a men’s collection inspired by the Thin White Duke, Ziggy Stardust and The Man Who Fell To Earth. For that I am eternally grateful. He was a gentle man, a sexy provocateur, a gender-blender and a rebel. He was also very funny. At one point during our first meeting I forgot where I was in my monologue. ‘I’ve lost my thread,’ I said, at which Bowie pointed out that was ‘not so good for a fashion designer — losing your thread.’ Bowie’s influence on myself and my fellow Central Saint Martins fashion students was profound. He fused the worlds of music and fashion with effortless grace and forged a blueprint for total creative expression and abandon. He was a consummate artist to the end and we will never see his like again.”
