Bowie’s Legacy Transcended Music By WWD Staff / wwd.com

Great piece from Women’s Wear Daily about how iconic rocker David Bowie’s legacy extended beyond music and influenced fashion and pop culture as well. From the article :

A vast swath of the fashion community — from Alexander McQueen and Hedi Slimane to Jean Paul Gaultier, Dries Van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck, Tommy Hilfiger and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac — were among those who were inspired by his style.

David Bowie is a cult, an absolute rock star,” Gaultier said. “He was relevant across periods, influenced them, even created them musically, intellectually and humanly. Personally, I was influenced by his creativity, his extravagance, his sense of fashion, allure, elegance and play on gender.”

I have included the wonderful slideshow from the article below. RIP David RIP, you will be missed.
