On Sunday – 10 January, we lost a legend. David Bowie died a peaceful death after a courageous 18 month battle with liver cancer, 2 days after his 69th birthday. His death is a huge loss to all his fans, especially the music and fashion lovers.

David Bowie was an iconic singer, artist, producer, actor and fashion god. He successfully invented his own style and made it look good. He grab fashion ideas from everywhere and put his spin on it. If anyone else wore most of his pieces, they would look stupid, but on Bowie, it was stylish. Guess that is why he is known as a Style Icon, he could get away wearing anything. He was a risk taker, and he was daring. This man had no comfort zone, Before Lady Gaga, there was David Bowie, and no one did flamboyance like him, no one even came close.

I adorned David Bowie’s music, style, confidence, willingness to try new things, and his ‘over the topness’. Sometimes I wish I could just let go and be like that, even if it was for 1 day. David Bowie did that to us, he was like a breath of fresh air, he had no rules, he lived his life on his own terms, and it felt good to watch. While other stars were busy being serious, he was having so much fun producing great music, playing around with his look, and standing out from the rest Guess that is why he was loved by many all over the world.

I am going to miss so much about him, but I believe he has gone to a better place, free from illnesses and worries, and I believe his music and style will continue to live on. My thoughts are with Iman and the rest of your family.

Rest in peace David Bowie.

  1. Great minds think alike, I was going to do a David B tribute post for my He Got Style issue…the world really lost a star. I think its so amazing in this Social Media Look At Me’ness that he kept his health to himself…no hospital selfies, nada! I have admired him forever, and now in light of his death so much media stuff is coming out about him that is so interesting- like the MTV interview he did way back when, when he told off the show for not playing enough black music… RIP…

  2. You are thinking on the same lines as me as I am writing a post about him too next week and how he fearlessly approached fashion. He was undoubtedly one of the greats and I am still shocked how the music industry has lost another incredible legend.
