Emerging fashion icons from the music world

Yes, red carpet fashion is fabulous. All the glitter, corsets and floor-gazing dresses can attract us in many ways. But really, who is going to wear that in real life? Not that we are judging J. Lo’s or Angelina Jolie’s sense of stylishness, sometimes we just need some new and fresh role models, to show us there is much more to fashion than impeccable elegance. 

Sometimes, all it takes is finding your own style and rockin’ it to the max. And we are happy to have plenty of those unique stars presenting their understanding of being fashionably chic (without being uptight). So, who are those shiny stars leading the way to self-discovering and risky but stunning youthful outfits? And how exactly are they doing it? Stick around and you might just find out.

Alternatively awesome
Let’s not fool ourselves, the spunky and alternative style has always come from the world of music and almost never straight out of the runway. Even if there are some fantastic designer pieces that are a little strange at first glance they don’t become fashion hit until some music star present them to the world. The pioneers of new fashion trends today are not the “front row stars” who are pushing each others to be the first in front of the camera, but the ones who are doing that subtly without rubbing their sense of fashion on other people’s noses, and simply offering their understanding of it, without obliging anyone to accept it.

Playing the guess who
Time to see who are those fabulous people leaving their mark on both music and fashion industry? Let’s start with the real fashion risk-taker, FKA Twigs. The singer-songwriter, producer, and dancer is constantly putting together designer pieces no one other would even occur to combine, but believe us, it looks hauntingly cool. Her sexy, chic and avaunt-garde style combining items such as Vivienne Westwood boots and over the top (but still cool) amount of gold jewelry by AnneliseMichelson is giving us a lot to talk about.

Speaking of risk-takers, we have a female rapper on the scene, and you know who it is. None other than M.I.A. She has taken over the fashion scene with her bold combinations, fluorescent colors, graphic prints, fashion leggings and over-sized proportions. This rapper can really work the stage in just about anything as long as it is conspicuous and fun.

One more rapper (this time male) is showing the beauty of cohabitation of music and fashion, by composing music for catwalk soundtrack. Zebra Katz owned the Paris fashion week with his song Ima read, and it has definitely become the trademark of entire week.

The beauty of individuality

Not only these musicians are showing us that music can be one with fashion and that they have a knockout style, but that is possible and desirable to take risks when it comes to fashion. Sometimes we forget that there are not and should not be limits to fashion. After all it its job to push the limits and to go across the borders, so it could never become boring, uptight and uneventful. 

People will always criticize and there will always be some resistance to something that differs from standard understandings, and that’s why someone has to be the pioneer in these matters. Luckily for us, we live in an age when M.I.A. rocked the show in futuristic patterns bright colored jumpsuit.

So you see, these are the fashion icons pushing the boundaries of conventional fashion, not just by what they wear, but by how it is presented to people around the globe, and what does that really mean. Let us translate it to you: Wear what you like and don’t be afraid to take risks.
