[New York]: np, ca. 1982. Red and black velvet costume designed by Jimmy Meyer for Klaus Nomi. Includes top, bloomers, cape, and ruff collar. Very good. Item #6527
One-of-a-kind piece of downtown couture, worn for Nomi's final performance.
Klaus Nomi’s iconic red and black Elizabethan-inspired costume. Nomi wore this look frequently for performances, press and appearances. This costume, and many of his other most-worn and well-known on-stage looks, were fabricated from Nomi’s own designs by costumer Jimmy Meyer. This was also the last costume Nomi ever performed in on stage, at his final show - in 1982 in Munich.
