A DREAMY SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP
Throughout the decades, musicians and their own personal style have always played an integral role in the influence of the world's fashion and style. What 80’s girl didn’t want to be Madonna in her cone bra, or these days who isn’t channelling Courtney Love in her 90’s grunge slip dress! You see fashion and music go hand-in-hand in what is a most magnificent, symbiotic relationship. Both music and fashion are the ultimate forms of self-expression in the raw….and there's nothing we love more at Chasing Unicorns than women who are not afraid to dress exactly as they please!
The decades have given us many of these incredible and oh-so-inspiring women that have graced our stages with both their music and their phenomenal style…from the opulent, elegant glam of Diana Ross and Cher through to the breathtaking exhibitionism of Lady Gaga and the original statement maker, Grace Jones, these are women whose style has shaped fashion forever.
Whether it’s the floaty 60’s and 70’s looks of Janis Joplin and Joni Mitchell with their oversized sunnies, denim flares and headscarves, or the red lips, teased blonde tresses and acid washed denim of Madonna and Debbie Harry in the 80’s, there is no mistaking the power of these musicians as both awe-inspiring creatives and style influencers alike.
The modern times have seen the likes of flowing bohemian chic from Florence Welch, the ostentatious and bold style of Karen O and Lady Gaga who is a law unto herself when it comes to wardrobe choices. These talented and amazing musicians have paved the way for women worldwide to embrace their own individual style albeit one that at times is influenced by these powerhouses of creativity and individuality.
Here at Chasing Unicorns there is always music of the past and present floating in the background and weaving itself into the designs, clothes and day to day magic, we are forever in awe of the powerful female musicians from all eras and their unabashed sense of style. We hope that a little of these incredible women dressing as their beautiful, exquisite selves inspires you to do the same as it does for us every single day.
