David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust of The 1970s

David Bowie (aka Ziggy Stardust) wearing a sensational creation by Kansai Yamamoto. Born in Yokohama in 1944, the Japanese fashion designer was only 27 when he held his first international fashion show in London in 1971. The Japanese division of RCA records made MainMan aware of Yamamoto’s work and Bowie purchased the “woodlands animal costume” from Kansai’s London boutique– which he wore at the Rainbow Concert in August 1972 and which was later remade by Natasha Korniloff.

Bowie subsequently viewed a video of a rock/fashion show that Kansai had staged in Japan the previous year and reportedly loved the costumes which were a combination of modern sci-fi and classical Kabuki theatre. Kansai and Bowie met in New York where he gifted Bowie two costumes during the 2nd US Tour. Kansai was then commissioned to create nine more costumes based on traditional Japanese Noh dramas for Bowie to pick up in Tokyo in April 1973. These were the flamboyant androgynous Ziggy Stardust costumes Bowie wore on the 3rd UK tour in 1973. via The Ziggy Stardust Companion.

Colorful Photos of Women Workers During WWII

Besides the bright ‘We Can Do It!’ poster of Rosie the Riveter, the women factory workers of World War II are difficult to imagine. It’s easy to think of soldiers and nurses, ever-present in WWII films, but all the women who took up rugged jobs assembling planes or operating machinery are harder to recall.
