If David Bowie’s goon squad came to town, what would they wear?
While turning from side to side, perhaps they would be clad in the latest that this season has to offer. Here are five takes on Bowie’s character creations. From Ziggy to Aladdin, from Major Tom to the Thin White Duke, Bowie is the inspiration for interpretation. So move from station to station, watch out for scary monsters, don’t hit an all-time low, and for now, let’s dance.
