David Bowie is

'David Bowie is' has finally come to a close and the V&A is celebrating one of it's most successful shows ever... luckily for Indigo, we got a chance to pop down and see what all the fuss was about. And true to the hype, it didn't disappoint.

From his humble origins as a young David Jones, through his meteoric rise as the illustrious Ziggy Stardust and beyond, we were treated to a creative tour de force positively revelling in a riot of colour. Highlights include his meticulous sketches and over 60 wardrobe creations including Alexander McQueen's union flag frockcoat. Perhaps surprisingly as designers, we took most inspiration from his 'random word generator' which gave us an insight into the creative process behind Bowie's groundbreaking songwriting.

David Bowie is inspirational. David Bowie is relevant. David Bowie is.
