Daniel Lismore has long been a jewellery style hero of mine and in recent months he really seems to have been upping his game in the fashion world; with a recent H&M campaign and an up and coming solo exhibition at SCAD in the US it seems he's swiftly breaking out from the London fashion and club scene and taking over the universe.
Vogue call him 'London's most outrageous dresser' and there is no denying that; his unique jewellery style is one of a kind. When you've seen him once there is no forgetting him. When I first encountered Daniel at a club around five years ago I was fascinated by his impressive, bejewelled, wire cage like necklace/ hat creation and if I hadn't been so intimidated by him I would have loved to approach him and talk about his amazing look. He was unlike anyone I had seen before and with unflinching self confidence in his unique style.
I didn't know who he was but from that point on I seemed to see him out everywhere; fingers wrapped in chunky rings and rocking amazing jewellery creations. When he sent me a Facebook friend request I was delighted! To this day I think he meant it for someone else, but who cares, I've been obsessed by his look and fabulous jewellery collection ever since.
His first solo style exhibition at the SCAD is called "Be Yourself; Everyone Else is Already Taken". A perfect mantra for life. And with a future appearance planned for Absolutely Fabulous I hope to see much more of him in 2016....and maybe in real life, not just Facebook :)
