That’s right, it’s confirmed. FashionIndie is about to take over Chicago electronic music festival North Coast. From August 31st – September 2nd we’re going to be searching for unique street style, bringing you exclusive interviews with artists and DJ’s, and recaps of the three day sweaty sendoff to summer from the heart of the midwest. Here are some examples from last year’s festival to give you a good idea.
New girl in town is flouting a ‘do that’s frontin’ side and wild. POW! This funky hair she’s wearing is called the “Janelle Monáe” because, well, she’s the lady that’s heating things up on her gorgeous album The ArchAndroid. Now, many of us wouldn’t imagine our hair could do a thing like hers – aka defy gravity in a tight flying pouf. But don’t doubt your hair so quickly! You can get this look, too, and make it your own. Watch our How-To Video on FashionIndie TV to learn how to do it yourself, and to hear Janelle Monáe’s bumpin’ new single Tightrope feat. Big Boi.

They may not call it fashion, but the greatest bands on the planet know in their blood that how they look helps drive the succes of the music itself. That way, when chicks like me are getting their groove on in the audience, we’re dancing with the pure sexiness on the stage before us – sound, body and soul. Here are the 10 bands* that do it best; fusing their sound to their clothes, dressed the way they rock.
