The often strange and compelling character of Le Pustra is based upon Commedia dell’Arte’s romantic ‘Pierrot’ and
inspired by the Gothic world of director Tim Burton's haunting films, Oskar Schlemmer's costumes for the Bauhaus
movement in the 1920's, Glam Rock, Haute Couture and Silent Films (or ‘flickers’ as they were known) especially
the works of Georges Méliès. Performers, Muses & Artists such as Luisa Casati, Klaus Nomi, David Bowie, Leigh
Bowery, Sebastian Droste, Barbette and Kiki de Montmartre feature as a source of inspiration for the artist’s highly
distinctive and romantic styling. Le Pustra's theatrical vision evokes a decadent dreamlike world of melancholia and
sepia-tinted vignettes; inspiring other artists and Bohemians alike.

Rotterdam, Barcelona and Frankfurt. Credits include London Fashion Week, Berlin Alternative Fashion Week, The
