Mikey Bean started the Facebook group Sue Clowes Clothing

British author Mikey Bean first discovered Sue’s prints through Culture Club and bought a couple of her pieces at the store Review back in the day, which he wore as part of his then ‘goth’ persona. As a current key collector of Sue’s designs he started the Facebook group Sue Clowes Clothing in 2009 and has since begun working on the book Budgies, Tramps And Thieves which will include an in-depth interview with Sue. The book, scheduled for 2013, will also contain many photographs of the original collections worn today, showing that the clothes are as wearable now as they were thirty years ago. Mikey is also incorporating some of Sue’s images into his tattoos as a collage piece.
