The Black Madonna provides the soundtrack for Louis Vuitton’s Cruise Show

Louis Vuitton Cruise Collection

What a year it’s been for The Black Madonna.

Since being chosen by Mixmag as their 2016 DJ of the Year, The Black Madonna has jumped head first into 2017 with shows across the globe including sets at Berlin’s Panorama Bar, Paris’ Concrete, Ceremonia Festival in Mexico and the Circo Loco opening party in Ibiza. Not to mention a return to Smart Bar in Chicago – where she’s Creative Director – and a star-studded 3 month residency at XOYO.

She’s quickly establishing herself as the DJ de jour for the fashion industry too. Earlier this year she was asked by Raf Simons to provide the soundtrack for Calvin Klein’s New York Fashion Week show, followed up by a set at the afterparty.

This time it was Nicolas Ghesquière who got in touch to invite her to Louis Vuitton’s Cruise Show at the spectacular Miho Museum in Kyoto, Japan.

This was one of Ghesqière’s most daring collections, with outfits featuring mixed animal prints, sequined Kabuki dresses (designed in collaboration with Kansai Yamamoto) and monogram chain belts. The Black Madonna’s remix of Robyn’s Indestructible was chosen to soundtrack to close the show.

So honored to hear my remix for @robynkonichiwa closing the brilliant @louisvuitton show in Kyoto today. 🌸✌🏻
