As huge fans of Lady Gaga not only of her music but her over-the-top couture ensembles, we were so excited to know that she shopped at M&J Trimming herself when she created her own costumes. You could imagine our surprise and excitement when she mentioned it in her latest music video “Marry the Night”, we just couldn’t believe it.
And if you don’t believe it either be sure to watch the video, and forward it to 7:12 ! Then go back and watch the whole thing because she’s so awesome!!
In an interview with WWD Magazine, Lady Gaga said she shops at M&J Trimming where she gets her inspiration for some of her funky and over the top pieces. The performer who describes her look as “filthy, unacceptable,” has now inspired M&J Trimming.
After her change of wild outfits and performance at the MTV Music Video Awards, Lady Gaga set the standard for every pop music artist. And if you weren’t a fan of Lady Gaga then, and still not, then you haven’t seen her latest video “Bad Romance”.
The concept of the video is a fashion installation of a Russian Bath-house. Lady Gaga wears these crazy and exciting costumes; including, shoes from designer Alexander McQueen which are worn throughout the video. When I watched the video for the first time I fell in love completely. The scene of her in the crystal top and headpiece was simply amazing and was my inspiration for this crystal bracelet.
