(13 February 1960 – 19 February 2018) was a British fashion stylist, accessories designer and punk iconoclast.
Judy Blame was born Christopher Barnes in 1960 in Leatherhead
, Surrey, and grew up in Spain
. He ran away to London
aged 17 “to become a punk” but because he knew nobody decided to spend the next two years in Manchester
which had its own lively scene. Among creative influencers encountered there was graphic designer Peter Saville
. “It was freedom for me so I was really happy. I came back to London at the time of the New Romantic
look and that’s when I became more aware of fashion,” Blame says in the SHOWstudio
video made in 2010.
