They say, “Tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are.” Well in the fashion world it should be, “Tell me what music you hear and I’ll tell you what your style is.” Every time a Fashionisto struggles when I ask them to describe their style, I always ask them to think what music they hear. After that, they just keep talking and talking. It is very interesting how music influences our everyday mood, so it’s not surprising that it also influences what we wear.
Designers have been inspired by their favorite artists also. Last Paris Fashion Week, Jean Paul Gaultier dedicated his runway show to all the pop stars of the '80s. It doesn’t matter if you look up to new or old artists, I believe that music is a very good reference to describing our personal style.
I was walking after my last class of the day when this Fashionisto caught my attention. The first thing that made me look at him was his sweater and his overall impeccable look. I had to go back to take a picture of him, talk about his style and find out how music influences his style.
