Fashion Eccentrics

I was thinking today about those people in fashion who push the boundaries and wear their clothes as an art form. It is these people that guide the way for the rest of us. While I admit to not being one to push too many boundaries myself, I love to see clothes being worn with an artistic flair. The style over function debate is one my friends and I discuss on a regular basis. For me and I think for anyone with a passion for clothes, I like to see the numerous ways items of clothing can be worn, why should clothes just be to serve a basic function?  It is people like this who are willing to take risks and show the fun side of fashion. So I've compiled a list of my favourite Fashion Eccentrics and perhaps those that are most popular currently in our culture. While I look at some of them and wonder why? - Bjork, you must have heard this so many times. There are others who, while fitting the eccentric mould, are simply luxuriously stunning to look at - Daphne Guinness, Cecilia Dean. Finally, there are those that are most eccentric as much for their thoughts and sayings as in the items they wear - Diana Vreeland, Vivienne Westwood.
