Daniel Lismore: 'I don't think there's any point blending in'
This feature is part of 'The Adorned,' a new series that explores the psychology behind extraordinary style. See more here.
Swathed in layers of material, ornaments and jewelry, a soft-spoken artist named Daniel Lismore proclaims that this is his "version of a T-shirt and shorts."
Lismore has long had a reputation as one of London's most flamboyant dressers, each day flying the flag for individuality with his eye-catching ensembles. His outfits serve as a form of statement, sculpture and even armor.
In this short film, he talks about how his singular sense of style has helped him to break down social boundaries and overcome a shy childhood.
