Fall 2020 — 10 Years

Runway Soundtrack

DEBUG: core/paragraph

If you watched our runway show live on IG, chances are you're still bobbing your head to sound stylist Javier Peral's pulse-pounding soundtrack, which melded the hip-hop beats of Missy Elliot with Dolly Parton's iconic "9 to 5" anthem—and more. Here, we talk to the man behind the music. He tell us about the inspiration and shares the complete all-female track list, too.

What was the inspiration behind the soundtrack?
One word: WOMEN! Plus, all the facets of being a woman—individuality, inner aura, inner callings, and what really makes a woman.

And the mood you wanted to evoke?
It's a fun and unapologetic love letter to the women who inspire the Veronicas. Joyful, layered, quick, full of surprises, and spans several decades and styles all mixed together.

DEBUG: core/paragraph

Tell us about the artists you decided to include…
Dolly Parton, Carly Simon, Missy Elliot, Janet Jackson, and Aretha Franklin, to name a few.
They are all iconic artists and influential women who have not only made a mark in the music industry, but have also touched everyone’s lives through the years. The songs’ themes are about empowerment and individuality. Rock steady!
