Music on the Runways

One of the most ingredients in a fashion show apart from the decor, collection and front row guests is the choice of music that helps create an unforgettable show. The music defines not only the collection but is the link between the concept, stage design, and clothes. The powerful and relevant music leaves a long-lasting impact on the audience and the message of the collection. Usually, designers choose and work with artists to create the perfect mix for the music on the runway and it has been a trend since the beginning.  Let’s look at our top four designer and musician collaborations in the last decade.

  1. The Black-Eyed Peas and Victoria’s Secret Show 2009

A set with a light show, lasers, and glow-in-the-dark backup dancers, beautiful Victoria’s secret angels and the Black Eyed Peas jamming on their super hit song – Boom Boom Pow was one the most memorable and exciting show in 2009.


2. Tom Odell and Burberry 2013

Tom Odell Performed “Hold Me” at Burberry Prorsum for the Autumn’Winter 2013 collection at London. It was all about love and laughter as Christopher Bailey introduced the “Burberry Kisses” campaign with the collection and collaboration with Tom.


3. Rhodes and Burberry Menswear 2016 

Rhodes Performed  ‘Close Your Eyes’ Live at the Burberry Menswear Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Show and everybody was obsessed with the artist. He effortlessly transitioned from his own ‘Close Your Eyes’ and the haunting ‘Breathe’, through to covers of Ultravox’s ‘Vienna’ and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ ‘I Put A Spell On You’.


4. Apple and Chanel

We have wondered and asked about the music in Chanel shows, well apple music introduced a playlist with all our favorite music from the Chanel show. From Björk’s Venus as a Boy to Elton John’s Rocket Man, through to majestic symphonies performed by the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, memorable musical moments have been put together by Michel Gaubert. We have found it all.
