W Magazine’s “Behind The Muses”

There is something to be said about the relationship between fashion and music. Certainly music is integral to the fashion world- imagine a runway with no music!

W Magazine explores the relationship between designers and their musician muses on film, photographed by Max Vadukul.

Freida Giannini, Gucci’s creative director names Florence Welch (Blake Lively’s new bestie) as her muse… “I was captivated by her eccentric style and her willingness to dare,” says Giannini, Gucci’s creative director, who designed Welch’s costumes for her current tour—and also took inspiration from her for the label’s fall 2011 collection.  (W Magazine).

Uber cool Alexander Wang of course names the uber cool Diplo as his modern day muse. Karl Lagerfeld bestows his favour on a fellow suit lover, Janelle Monae telling W “We liked each other from the first second on,” says the designer. “Not just because of our style, but also the name: Janelle rhymes with Chanel, no?”.
