LEIGH BOWERY! Inspired by..
Hi guys!! So being one of the few late 20 YO students in my fashion school, I;m shocked to learn that almost no one in my classes know of the great Leigh Bowery!

I know many great designers were inspired by the outrageous looks he has done and want to know of any more you guys can think of.

Let's talk about how much of a great artist he is!! I hate how much people try to compare Lady Caca to him. NO COMPARISON!

You should make your classmates watch "The Legend of Leigh Bowery"!

I'm pretty sure it's still online somewhere as that's where I saw it.

And to be fair, Lady Gaga has mentioned him many times as a huge influence.

Yes I know she has giving respect to Leigh, its just frustrating watching clips and reading comments comparing the two. Not hating here at all (despite my C and G interchange)..

Do not worry, I'm not a scary Gaga stan.

But it was her mentioning him in some interview ages ago that made me start re-thinking his work and look for that film. I imagine I'm not the only one?
