The Legend of Leigh Bowery

"If clothes are going to mean anything they've got to threaten or challenge. If they have that edge they should provoke people into thinking."

Leigh Bowery is outrageous, thought-provoking, and in his own way, beautiful. The 2002 documentary The Legend of Leigh Bowery is a must for your Netflix.

Bowery, a Melbourne native, became famous for his over-the-top outfits and unusual design concepts. Each design was made to captivate its audience and cause a scene. A majority of his designs were created for himself. He was the project; he was the art.
