    MUSIC COSTUMES Imagine a movement that starts in the underground basements, reaches mainstream and gains great proportions after being incorporated by the industry. This sentence could easily be one referring to music, but it is actually about fashion. Each one of us can be identified in the world through the clothes we wear and the music we listen to. Social groups organize themselves based on their perceptions of the world and the artists that inspire them. If music is understood as the voice of time, fashion must be its face. The relationship between these languages remains registered in History. In the 20’s, the funky sounds of Jazz asked for short fringe flapper dresses. Rock ‘n Roll from the 50’s brought along pompadour hairdos, sideburns and leather jackets. The counterculture spirit of the Hippie Movement could be easily identified in floral shirts and bell-bottoms worn in music festivals by the audience. Inspired by the wedding between fashion and music, the artist Fred Birchal created his last series of posters with costumes from great musicians. The collection was coined “Music Costumes” and it includes 35 digital arts representing artists that go from Bob Dylan to Beyoncé. Fred’s work is impressive in its precision and great attention to detail. Each illustration was thoroughly created by the artist, showing the construction of a complex universe down to the smallest detail - Janis Joplin’s accessories, Prince’s guitar, and the lines of each spike in Kiss’ costume. Unarguably, fashion and music complement and influence each other in a healthy but unconventional relationship. No jealousy, or attachments - music and fashion are also in a relationship with arts.

MUSIC COSTUMES
 
Imagine a movement that starts in the underground basements, reaches mainstream and gains great proportions after being incorporated by the industry. This sentence could easily be one referring to music, but it is actually about fashion.

Imagine um movimento que começa nos porões undergrounds, chega ao mainstream e toma grandes proporções após ser incorporado pela indústria. Essa frase poderia se referir à música, mas o nome disso é moda.

Cada um de nós se identifica no mundo pelas roupas que usamos e pelas músicas que ouvimos. Grupos sociais são formados pela sua maneira de ver o mundo e pelos artistas nos quais se inspiram. Se a música é entendida como a voz do tempo, a moda é a sua cara.

A relação entre essas linguagens ficou registrada na história. Nos anos 20 o som dançante do jazz pedia vestidos curtos e com franjas. O rock and roll da década de 50 vem acompanhado de topete, costeletas e jaquetas de couro. O espírito de contestação do movimento hippie era facilmente identificado pelas camisas florais e as calças boca-de-sino usadas pelo público dos festivais de música.

Foi inspirado pelo casamento entre moda e música que o artista mineiro Fred Birchal criou a sua última série de posters com figurinos de grandes músicos. A coleção foi chamada de “Music Costumes” e conta com 35 ilustrações digitais representando artistas que vão desde Bob Dylan até Beyoncé.

O trabalho de Fred impressiona pela precisão e pela riqueza de detalhes. Cada ilustração foi criada minuciosamente pelo artista que demonstra a construção de um verdadeiro universo. A fidelidade dos detalhes está presente nos acessórios de Janis Joplin, na guitarra de Prince e no desenho de cada rebite presente no figurino do Kiss.

Sem dúvida moda e música se complementam e se influenciam em um relacionamento saudável, mas nada convencional. Sem ciúmes ou apego, música e moda também se relacionam com a arte.
