David Bowie and Design


Whilst he will always be remembered for his musicianship, David Bowie was a pioneer and icon in design.

From his incredible stage personae (including Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, and the Thin White Duke) to his album covers and stage sets, David Bowie influenced the worlds of art, music, and fashion for nearly fifty years.

Dezeen has put together a list of some of Bowie’s best design moments and these are our favourites:

Diamond Dogs Tour stage set
An Art Deco-style metropolis, monochrome with paint splashes of colour, provided a versatile and atmospheric set for Bowie’s 1974 live tour.

Union Jack Coat by Alexander McQueen
Heralding the era of Cool Britannia, this coat became one of the artist’s most iconic looks in the late 1990s.

Ziggy Stardust sun makeup
While Aladdin Sane might be more instantly recognisable, it was Ziggy’s shimmering makeup and androgynous style that cemented Bowie’s reputation.
