Leigh Bowery

Among the heavyweights of performance and fashion is the visionary Leigh Bowery, whose experimentations with fashion, costume, character and performance, as well as the body and gender had an immense and lasting impact on so many of his contemporaries. Influential fashion designers from John Galliano to Gareth Pugh, Walter van Beirendonck and John Paul Gaultier, have paid tribute to Leigh in their collections and shows. He was also a muse of painters and musicians. Here he is in footage from Carolyn Franklin's The Clothes Show.
