Coachella – fashion tribe or music vibe?

So Coachella has come to an end and, once again, kick starts the festival trends for the summer ahead! With an A-list line up of artists including Guns n Roses, LCD Soundsystem, The Kills, Bat For Lashes, The Last Shadow Puppets and DJ’s Sasha and John Digweed (the list goes on), the music alone is enough to give you festival envy. But still, rightly or wrongly so (I can’t decide), it seems to be the revellers fashion choices that attracts the most attention, side tracking from the music, Coachella has become more infamous as a festival fashion parade!

Coachella is the closest thing the USA has to the UK’s ultimate music festival Glastonbury, the only thing that’s guaranteed to be better is the weather!! So with that in mind, celebrities and festival goers alike can really make the most of showing off their summer style. BohemianHippie (with an added dose of sex appeal) seems to be the unwritten dress code. Long floaty dresses, grunge rock Tees, denim cut-off’s, floppy hats, coin jewellery, 70’s flares, Janis Joplin style sunnies, tassels, lace, crochet, tie-dye, and flower child head dresses are the apparent uniform!

Think ‘contrived Woodstock’ and you’ll get the idea!

My only hope is that these fashion concious beauties forget the fashion show and really get down and dirty to enjoy the music as the sun goes down! That’s really what it’s about after all!

Having said that, I can’t help but love some of the festival style on show each year at Coachella, so here’s a look at some of the best of 2016’s fashion tribe…..

Now, fashion show aside, here are a few of my fave pics from Coachella that remind us of why music festivals are so damn special! That feeling of freedom and ‘anything goes’, the electric energy and a vibe of ‘oneness’ that can’t be beaten no matter what you’re wearing!

So 2016 started with the devastating news that the world had lost one it’s most inspirational and talented artists of all time. The sad news of David Bowie’s death on the 10th of January was a heartfelt shock to so many of us. A true musical genius, fashion icon and legend of his time. With his innovative music pushing boundaries and ever changing style, David Bowie was truly out of this world. A south London boy with an intergalactic soul, Bowie`s influence shaped the music scene spanning generations and touched the lives of millions.

So what better way to Honor such a modern day hero than with his very own place in the cosmos!

Belgian astronomers have given Bowie his own constellation, consisting of seven stars that shine in the shape of the lightning bolt which appropriately sits in the vicinity of Mars!

RIP David Bowie you truly are a Starman x
