From over-the-top glam rock attire to stripped down menswear, Bowie and his numerous personas influenced the fashion world immeasurably.
While blurring the lines between masculine and feminine, acceptable and over-the-top, Bowie’s style — just like his music — will continue to inspire long after his death.
Bowie evolved from persona-to-persona over the years, once discussing his chameleon-like personality, saying, “I find that I am a person who can take on the guises of different people that I meet. I always found that I collect. I am a collector, and I always seem to collect personalities, ideas.”
