Daniel Lismore - Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken
Daniel Lismore is known for elaborate and extravagant ensembles that brilliantly combine haute couture with charity-shop finds, yards of vintage fabrics and tartans, found objects, ribbons, feathers, chain mail, shells, ethnic jewellery, retro accessories, millinery and more in an expression of eccentric, creative energy. A prominent fixture of the London fashion and nightlife circuits, he is both tastemaker and friend to artists ranging from Stephen Fry and Debbie Harry to Boy George and Vivienne Westwood. For his first major publication, Lismore has selected thirty major ensembles rich with social, historical, and cultural themes from around the world. Lismore s unique sartorial point of view and wildly imaginative sculptural creations beckon fashion lovers to question and analyse their own personal identity and individual sense of style.
