Daniel Lismore is known for elaborate and extravagant ensembles that brilliantly combine haute couture with charity-shop finds, yards of vintage fabrics and tartans, found objects, ribbons, feathers, chain mail, shells, ethnic jewellery, retro accessories, millinery and more in an expression of eccentric, creative energy. A prominent fixture of the London fashion and nightlife circuits, he is both tastemaker and friend to artists ranging from Stephen Fry and Debbie Harry to Boy George and Vivienne Westwood. For his first major publication, Lismore has selected thirty major ensembles rich with social, historical, and cultural themes from around the world. Lismore s unique sartorial point of view and wildly imaginative sculptural creations beckon fashion lovers to question and analyse their own personal identity and individual sense of style.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It's an in-depth look at the exhibition. Hilary Alexander and Paula Wallace wrote most of the text, and there are quotes from Edward Enninful, Vivienne Westwood, Matt Lucas, Debbie Harry, Boy George, Stefano Pilati, and Stephen Fry."
--Daniel Lismore, interview with The Daily Front Row

"Dubbed "London's Most Outrageous Dresser," Daniel Lismore, the six-foot-four nightlife impresario known for his highly detailed, intricately constructed constumes, is set to release an anthology of his creations, published by Rizzoli."
--V Magazine

"You better fasten your seat belt as this is pretty much visual overload or the visual feast to end all feasts. If one's body can be considered a canvas to paint upon and clothes could be considered the paint, then Daniel Lismore is one of the greatest artists if not portraitist ever to walk the face of the earth....If you search for a book that will stimulate your mind and your senses, then Be Yourself, Everyone Else Is Already Taken is a must have. The book is a conversation piece as well as a tome that deserves the attention of those who fancy themselves aficionados and cognoscenti of fashion. Think clothing as theater and spectacle!"
--New York Journal of Books
