From Mogul to Muse - Fashion embraces Music
It has been a common sight in recent years for music artists to feature in fashion campaigns as the two industries draw closer and closer through collaborations. If nothing else, it proves how powerful both music and fashion communication are to popular culture. We take a look at 6 fashion campaigns featuring music artists who shook up the campaign game.

With some big shoes to fill from the start, P Diddy's son Christian Combs appears to have made a name for himself already. By following in his father's footsteps of stepping into the music industry, Combs has also made use of his inherited good looks and taken to modelling.
In Dolce & Gabbana's S/S '18 campaign, Combs can be seen hitching a ride along the canal in Venice wearing a very sleek burgundy suit and sneaks, bringing a fresh look to the iconic brand.
Christian Combs also walked the runway for the brand for their S/S '18 show, wearing a custom made leather jacket, ruffle shirt and pinstripe trousers, topped with a crown. A nod to his stage name, King Combs.

FKA Twigs for Calvin Klein Jeans S/S '16
