NYFW Playlist: 10 Songs About Fashion Designers


While in New York Fashion Week mode, we also await the release of Lady Gaga’s “Donatella”, the ARTPOP track dedicated to the Versace HBIC. To keep you at pay and inspired this week, jam out to these ten songs from the last decade by artist who love fashion designers and their brands:

Most recently, Jay-Z dedicates a whole song to a  talented designer in “Tom Ford” (2013)

Every high-end designer imaginable gets a shout out in A$AP Rocky‘s “Fashion Killa” (2013)

Dolce & Gabbana and Celine are cited in Azealia Banks‘ “Van Vogue” (2012)

Lady Gaga namechecks Alexander McQueen in “Fashion For His Love” (2011)

Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Fendi and Prada in Kreayshawn‘s “Gucci Gucci” (2011)

With a song called “Fashion Beats,” from the Black Eyed Peas, you’d assume a lot of names are dropped, but Coco Chanel is the only designer here (2010)

Christian Louboutin in Jennifer Lopez‘s “Louboutins” (2009)

No question Gaga loves fashion, she mentions labels like Fendi, Prada and Valentino in “Fashion” for  Confessions of Shopaholic (2009)

An array of big names get a callout in Fergie‘s “Labels Or Love” for the Sex And The City movie (2008)
