Step to the beat // London Fashion Week SS13: sounds from the catwalk

The clothes might be fleeting but the tunes are forever. That was the musical message from London Fashion Week’s SS13 shows.

From Disco to trash-pop, electro to er… Kate Nash with Cruella de Vil hair, London Fashion Week had a bit of noise to suit everyone.

Let’s prove how musically democratic our lovely designers are with Le Blow’s guide to the sound tribes that that were covered on the catwalk…

90s diehards

90s supermodels

Woah! It’s Shampoo! Lovers of sunglasses, pencil-thin brows and waiting in vain for the night bus – House of Holland gave his party-loving FROW a bubblegum blast of fun.

Kate Nash performed at Felder Felder and has showed off her best grungy 90s Courtney Love impression her latest single, Under-Estimate the Girl.

The one-step-ahead kids

SUBTRKT (ft. Jessie Ware) and Grimes were on DJ duties for the progressive dance kids.

Dead Can Dance brought some fashionably trippy weirdness and hypnotic beats to Mario Schwab’s beautifully minimal colour palette on the catwalk.

Fashion thinkers

Yes, they do exist! AlunaGeorge gave trip-hop beats and soulful singing to Moschino’s 60s inspired show whilst the thoughtfully introspective beauty of Daughter rang out at Bora Asku.

Your mum

If you’re as old and as well dressed as Anna Della Russo, you might remember the disco years the first time round…

Acne closed their show with a cover of Abba’s Dancing Queen and Mary Katranzou’s show featured Bowie’s The Man Who Sold The World, proving some tunes are always in fashion.
