I'll never forget his sewing 'I am a cunt' into the lining of a jacket he worked on for Prince Charles...the tush revealing jeans dubbed 'the bumsters'...that lavish recreation of a shipwreck for his spring 2003 collection.... the Alien and Armadillo shoes at his 2010 spring/summer collection. Outrageous but oh-such fun!
"I was sure of myself and my sexuality and I've got nothing to hide. I went straight from my mother's womb onto the gay parade" and how can I forget "Clothes and jewellery should be startling, individual. When you see a woman in my clothes, you want to know more about them. To me, that is what distinguishes good designers from bad designers."How could I resist? I will always admire and remember him for his refusal to compromise his vision . Long live The Queen!
