Madonna Discusses Her Mother-Daughter Fashion Venture
Work-a-holic Madonna always has lots going on, so for the aptly-named Material Girl fashion line, which will be sold exclusively at Macy’s starting Aug. 3, the singer turned to her 13-year-old daughter Lola for help with the designs, reports USA TODAY’s Cindy Clark. “Since I have a few careers going, I decided that I wasn’t going to get into designing this line by myself,” says the 51-year-old singer.
“No question, Lola seemed the perfect choice. She is really doing most of the work. She shows me things and I go ‘that’s cool’ or ‘that’s not cool.’ We both go to business meetings. We exchange ideas, talk things out and even disagree about some things, though rarely.” Madonna also notes that her daughter has a “unique” fashion sense and is “much more adventurous than I am.”
And while Madonna knows how to strike a pose, she got behind the lens to ensure model/actress Taylor Momsen looked just right.
-On Lola’s fashion sense: “She’s influenced by everything from bands she listens to, kids she sees in hip-hop and ballet classes and she’s been to enough photo sessions, video shoots and seen me put my tours together to have developed a great eye. She’s also worked in the wardrobe department on some of my tours. I love the way she puts different things together that are sometimes unexpected. She’s the fashion police at our house and has a point of view on what everyone is wearing. I’m not saying we agree on everything but we enjoy collaborating together.”
