While we wait with bated breath to see what the New York’s top designers will show at Spring 2013 Fashion Week, we’re equally excited about the music our favorite talents are loving right now. It’s about more than just a simple runway playlist—we wanted to get the scoop on the songs that are inspiring these designers and informing their entire creative process, too. So we asked some of our industry favorites to divulge their current tunes of choice—and now, we’re sharing them with you!
It’s been a pretty good year for Wes Gordon. The young designer won the Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Award and dressed everyone’s girl crush Lena Dunham for the Met Ball. For his upcoming collection, Gordon is inspired by a playlist that includes a varied mix of laid-back songs that will undoubtedly make you sway. Kind of like those feathers in his spring sketch.
