    My fellow 80’s babies and music lovers alike are undoubtedly reeling from this information, struggling to process how someone so talented and relatively young could be gone so soon. Instead of focusing on our shock and sorrow, we at The Fashion Bomb would like to celebrate him today, and highlight the contributions he made to music, our culture, and most importantly fashion.

    You don’t have to look very far to see how much his innovative style impacted the trendsetters of today.
