Singer. Songwriter. Icon. Jake Shears looks back on his sartorial choices from his teenage years, through to his time in the Scissor Sisters and beyond. How did moving to New York change his personal style? Why does he think he’s bad at dressing himself? And what was he thinking when he would perform on stage wearing as little as possible?

Jake lets us in on his most memorable fashion moments including exploring the Vivienne Westwood vault and finding a lacy piece that he fell in love with, his days shopping in New York thrift stores and finding Princess Leia inspired fits and how The Rockettes inspired his style when he was doing Kinky Boots on Broadway.
