Bill Bowers: Art-Wear Jackets

Bill Bowers: Art-Wear Jackets. "...To have clothing accepted as an art form is no easy task, but Bill Bowers succeeded in doing just that with the help of Mark Phillips who has collaborated with Billy since the early '70s converting the flat pieces into wearable clothing that could survive the grueling stage performances of the likes of Keith Richards and Mick Jagger. A fashion designer for the leading rock stars like Alice Cooper, Led Zepplin, and the Rolling Stones, Bowers' Art-Wear creations have received due recognition by their inclusion in the permanent costume collections of the Smithsonian in the '70s and the Oakland Museum of California in 2006."
