Madonna Sets the Bar for Rock Fashion.

By Laura Medina

There is a reason why this scribe is such a music fan because rockers and musicians start fashion trends and set styles and form style tribes.

Alright, this scribe is an Eighties Kid, entering the formative years during MTV, where style mattered as much as substance.  This is where Madonna came in.

At the beginning, she had to do what she had to; and she made use of what she had.  In other words, she was resourceful with dancer sweats in New York all-black, accessorize with dirt cheap rubber bangles that any thirteen years-old can afford.

Madonna knew and knows this.  Pretty soon, designers know the power and the influence of rockers when it comes to fashion.

If you can see Madonna on her up-coming tour, it's a great value.  It's a dance/rock concert meets runway show.  Plus, the wardrobe has to work while she moves, importance for wearability. 

 Who are the fashion designers that Madonna will wear on her Rebel Heart World Tour:  Alessandro Michele for Gucci, Alexander Wang, Fausto Puglisi, Jeremy Scott for Moschino, Nicolas Jebran, Miu Miu, Prada and Swarovski. Costume designer Arianne Phillips will be overseeing the wardrobe for the Rebel Heart Tour and will also contribute designs, marking her sixth tour with Madonna. 
The Rebel Heart Tour will kick off on September 9th in Montreal, Quebec at Bell Centre and visit cities throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Since the tour was announced this past spring, due to overwhelming demand, multiple shows have been added in cities across the world including: Montreal, New York City, Toronto, Miami, Koln, Turin, Barcelona, Berlin, Sydney, Melbourne, Manila and more. Diplo will open the Rebel Heart Tour in Montreal on September 9th and 10th, and Amy Schumer will open the two dates at New  York's Madison Square Garden and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
