Rihanna Leaving Jacquie Aiche’s Studio Style
polka dots Stefani designed with a very particular woman in mind: “Me!” she says. “This is the stuff that I really wear. It’s very selfish. It’s all for me.” Still, she very much would prefer that the line be known as L.A.M.B. rather than “Gwen Stefani’s line.”
“We didn’t want it to be just another celebrity tracksuit label,” Younger says.
Stefani has designed her stage wardrobe from the very start. “I was always competing with the guys, so I had to balance being taken seriously and ‘Show me your tits,’ ” she says. “And when I was younger I was a thrift-store junkie; I didn’t read fashion magazines or anything.

And, as is revealed in “Fashioning the Modern Woman: The Art of the Couturiere, 1919-1939,” opening February 10 at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, this identity was in large part created by pioneering designers, many of whom are now little known or forgotten.
“This was not only about a working-class girl making her way up the ranks at a dressmaking house,” says the show’s curator, Valerie Steele.
