Daniel Lismore is a London based artist, designer, celebrity stylist, writer and campaigner. He has been named by British Vogue as England’s most outrageous dresser and is known for his elaborate and extravagant ensembles that brilliantly combine haute couture with his own designs created out of vintage fabrics, found objects, chain mail, ethnic jewellery, millinery and more in an expression of eccentric creative energy.
The exhibition, Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken was co-curated and first shown by SCAD FASH Museum of fashion + Film in Atlanta in 2016. It offers an immersion into Lismore’s unique sartorial point of view – living as art. Inspired since childhood by the Terracotta Army, Lismore has created life-size sculptural warriors – each wearing an ensemble worn by the artist at a key point in his life, each a reflection of his multidimensional identity, together an army forming a tapestry of his journey to his true self.
The exhibition is open daily from 12:30 – 20:00.
