Fashion Evolution: David Bowie Style, from Mod to Glam Rock8 jan 1947 - 10 jan 2016) at the age of 69. A cultural icon, he challenged traditional codes throughout his career as one of the most influential figures of the 20th century, progressing from his mod behinnings to pioneer androgyny as performance art with his legendary Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane and Halloween Jack alter-egos. We pay tribute, with a return to his show-stopping style evolution. RIP, David.
