Pop star Gwen Stefani presented the Fall/Winter collection of her L.A.M.B. clothing line on the final night of Mercedes-Benz fashion week. No doubt (pun intended) her musical background influenced the show, which truly was an amazing production.
A bass heavy playlist provided the soundtrack for the runway show, which featured six distinct mini collections. We Will Rock You played as the “Soldier Girls” sported army green looks. The late reggae singer Gregory Isaacs called for his Night Nurse as the “Ragga Muffin” girls strolled down the runway in orange and yellow prints. The “Buffalo Girls,” wearing slouchy designs, walked to “Buffalo Gals.” The “London Girls” wore plaid; the “Mod Girls” donned dots and stripes; and the “Glamour Girls” dressed in black jumpsuits and outfits reminiscent of the days of Studio 54.
The L.A.M.B. Final Walk from Fall/Winter 2011
Instead of a plain white backdrop, as is customary during fashion week, the L.A.M.B. show featured a video screen that changed with each group that came down the runway. I was uber excited to see a picture of Bob Marley pop up during the “Ragga Muffin girls” segment. I was rocking in my seat the entire time. By the time the L.A.M.B. show started I was I was exhausted by Fashion week, but the high energy of the show and the amazing soundtrack had me thinking of going to a party afterwards, though I did end up going straight home.
