Wildly Imaginative Wearable Sculptures From London's Most Eccentric Dresser

Daniel Lismore is a conceptual artist who uses fashion as his medium of choice. Every outfit is a masterful composition that mixes historical, social, and cultural themes from around the world.

Due to his incredible fashion ensembles, Lismore has become an icon in London's nightlife scene and has earned the reputation of the most flamboyant dresser in England.

His incredible, multi-layer fashion ensembles and hip-length black hair make a make a striking statement. Plus, his six-foot-four height ensures that he pretty much always stands out from the crowd.

“Clothes mean everything to me,” says Lismore of his chosen art form.

“I know full well I’m going to get attention when I walk out the door, but I don’t dress for attention. I dress for myself and I dress to break my own boundaries."

I’m not sure if it’s fashion or art. Or would you say I’m living art? I’m still unsure about that.

So his Lismore's work fashion or art? Even he can't quite tell the difference.

"I’m not sure if it’s fashion or art. Or would you say I’m living art? I’m still unsure about that. There were, and are, a few reasons I do what I do: Because I want to, also I’m so deep inside this ‘persona’, that people don’t see me, and because I like to push boundaries. Sometimes, I’m quite socially awkward, in the way, because of my height, but when I accentuate it, I thrive. I like to be amused."

This year, Lismore released his first major publication featuring 32 of his avant-garde ensembles. The book is called Daniel Lismore: Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken and can be ordered through Amazon.
