Farewell to The Thin White Duke

It’s rare that the death of a famous person genuinely affects me but when I found out this morning that David Bowie had lost his 18 month battle with cancer I Β was genuinely devastated.

A timeless icon of music, film, art and fashion he has never stopped reinventing and challenging himself – becoming ever more relevant year after year, decade after decade. He was the ultimate king of effortless cool. I guess I kind of thought he’d live forever and the ideaΒ that he is no longer with us breaks my heart.

Rest in Peace Ziggy Stardust. Gone but never forgotten.

    Farewell to Major Tom. Goodbye to Ziggy Stardust. A fond adieu to the Thin Whte Duke. You were one and the same and yet so incredibly different. We loved you. We’ll miss you. Rest in peace.

  4. To say I’m still a bit devastated about Bowie is an understatement! Beautiful tribute Abbi.
