When Music Does Fashion
The biggest voices in music have some of the biggest clothing lines in fashion
You’ve probably heard that music influences fashion. We’ve seen it happen time and time again, so there must be some truth to it. It happened in the 60s and 70s with mod and glam rock, and then in the 90s with grunge. So if this is so, does that mean that musicians make some of the best fashion designers?
Back in 2014, Adam Levine brought sexy to Kmart. He debuted his line in October of that year and items almost literally flew off shelves.

The House of Deréon was first introduced in 2006 by Beyoncé and her mother, Tina Knowles. We have to say, the mother-daughter duo definitely know how to bring catwalk trends to the street.
L.A.M.B is a mix of a lot of things, with Gwen Stefani taking inspiration from all parts of the world. Much like herself, the clothing line is high on personality.
Working with Kohl’s, Jennifer Lopez has brought some sexy and glamorous items to the fashion market. Her line is generally made of flattering silhouettes, prints and embellishments.
Stylist Karla Welch is partnering up with Hanes to make Justin Bieber’s signature long white T available for everyone. The genius behind the below-the-belt hemline is that wearers get to show off every layer of their clothing.
Kanye West is a man of many talents and fashion is evidently one of his passions. He released his own ready-to-wear items in 2012 and has since worked with other brands to get his name on clothes, shoes and even children’s wear.
In another mother-daughter collaboration, Madonna and Lourdes built Material Girl. The releases were mostly geared towards teenagers, but this never made it any less ogle-worthy.
Pharrell’s Billionaire Boys Club has made its own name in streetwear. Its grungy and futuristic designs have even been worn by some of his biggest colleagues in music, such as Jay Z and Kanye West.
If you don’t know about Fenty x Puma, you’ve been living under a rock. The line has become so popular that items are often sold out. Her footwear is a hot commodity though a little mix-received.
Once upon a time, Victoria Beckham was known as Posh Spice. But since her Spice Girls days, she has nurtured and grown her own personal fashion brand. While her aesthetic is generally still posh, she has dabbled into children’s wear as well.
No matter what we do, music will always have a place in fashion. And we honestly wouldn’t have it any other way!
