Fashion Designer, Cabaret Performer, DJ, Graphic Artist and Bingo Host. Join us as we chat to the multi-talented showbiz sensation, Boogaloo Stu.
1-How was ‘Boogaloo Stu’ created?
I used to run a club night called Dynamite Boogaloo in Brighton. When it started in 1992, it took someone else to point out that Boogaloo rhymed with Stu, I was simply too caught up in my own fabulousness to realise. I was a DJ initially, and then performing gradually took over.
2-We have to talk about your glam-rock look, do you design and make all your costumes?
I do indeed. I up-cycle old 70s lurex gowns into hi-fashion looks. I love the process of figuring out what I can make with the limited amount of fabric I have. And also, I’m all about the details – from the base of my stack heels to the top of the quiff, everything is made by me.
