As I sit here to write about the Label-de-force that is Motown, I must admit, that as a child and for most of my life, I was not a fan of the music. I could never imagine that any music my parents danced to, could be cool.
I did however know the name and that what lay underneath it was bigger and more important than a young girl with a big attitude but narrow opinions on something that was obviously much bigger than she could at that time fully comprehend and appreciate.
Fashion and music share a tightly-woven path. A musician performing to an audience is a great catwalk to becoming a style icon. Over the decades however we can see many an artist’s influences stitched not only into their stage performances and attire but into their everyday fashion style.
