After seeing Madonna in concert for the first time this October, my twenty-some year obessession with the pop legend blazed anew. My boyfriend is getting a little fed-up of the Hardy Candy album rotation in our itunes playlist, and while driving home to Pittsburgh for Thanksgiving, I made sure that we had no less than three Madonna cds in the car ready to slide in and keep me bopping to the beat all the way down the PA turnpike.

The music at fashion week shows not only sets the tone for the collection, but almost equally as important is that it can get the sleep-deprived editors/buyers/stylists tapping their stiletto-ed heels to the beat, creating a fond, memorable experience for a show that otherwise can blur in with the other 60+ collections seen in a week!

  • Edith Piaf — Louis Vuitton
  • Madonna (Borderline) — Balmain
  • Hooverphonic —  Rock & Republc
  • Ladyhawke — Chanel
  • Annie — Jeremy Scott
