There has been a spate of celebrity deaths recently, with Robin Williams and Lauren Bacall making headlines everywhere. But this week we lost a lesser-know celebrity, someone whose work was probably closer to all our teenage Goth hearts: Lip Service founder and designer Drew Bernstein. He was found dead on Monday, another apparent suicide, at the age of 51.
Thanks for everything, Lippy. You don’t know me, and I didn’t know you, but you certainly decorated the world I lived in for a very long time. Mutual friends spoke of you with love and respect. You inspired a generation of independent designers. And you made some seriously epic pants.
RIP Drew Bernstein 1963-2014
