The “Marriage” Between Fashion and Music

Teens, and generation Y tend to get their fashion trends from musicians that they like. Pop Stars are the fasion trend setter. The music and fashion industry have become so intertwined that recording artists are now using their fame to sell their own fashion line of clothing.

Sean Combs, Britney Spears, Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Gwen Stefani are just a few entertainers that are cashing in on the “marriage” between fashion trends and music.

Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B line is my favorite female music/fashion fusion. Stefani made most of the clothing that she wore on stage with No Doubt, resulting in increasingly eclectic combinations. Stylist Andrea Lieberman introduced her to haute couture clothing, which led to Stefani launching a fashion line named L.A.M.B. in 2004 The line takes influence from a variety of fashion trends, including Guatemalan, Japanese, and Jamaican styles.

Sean Comb or “Diddy” is the wealthiest person in the hip hop entertainment business. One of the early music ventures, Sean Jean started as a street-smart solution to urban style—hoodies, hats, and T-shirts. His fashion sense matured into pricey designer apparel like suits, outerwear, and lots of fur, along with a women’s line that debuted in 2003. For the most part, his collections manage to maintain “street cred” while earning the fashionista stamp of approval. Surprisingly, Combs was nominated by the CFDA four times before collecting the award for CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year in 2004. Keep in mind he was competing with Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren. His award reportedly stems from the buzz he generated in the fashion industry, which might account for why he has called his label—which earns more than $500 million a year in retail sales—“Fashion Viagra.”

Kanye West plans on trumping “diddy” and starting his own fashion line. According to U.K. tabloid The Sun,. The newspaper reported that West has applied to London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design — whose alumni include Stella McCartney and the late Alexander McQueen — to study for a Master’s degree in fashion. This could be an interesting fashion pheromone considering his apparel will be most likely debuted in his musical.

Lady Gaga or the new aged Madonna is my least favorite fashion influence.  Gaga’s wardrobe is heavily influenced by the Eighties club scene, and her cartoonish take on fashion Compared to pop princesses such as Britney, Gaga is less concerned with looking conventionally pretty and sexy than in pushing boundaries.

    Wow I just adore her! She is gosh darn beautiful and a really good actor. I don’t think the show V is all that good, none the less I watch it anyway just so I can see Morena. And I don’t know if you’ve ever seen her do an interview but she is also rather funny and it all seems to come so natural for her. I personally never even heard of her before The V, now I’ll watch anything she’s on.
