The Velvet Underground influenced the Jean Paul Gaultier Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 Collection (the soundtrack of this show featured The Velvet Underground’s « I’m Waiting for the Man »).

Other The Velvet Underground, Lou Reed or Nico-inspired collections or items : Alexander Wang Autumn/Winter 2010-2011, Deborah Pagani Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 (gold and diamond « Nico » earrings, inspired by Nico), Dior by John Galliano Couture Spring/Summer 2005 (the soundtrack of this collection, based on an « Edie Sedgwick meets the Empress Josephine » theme, was live renditions of The Velvet Underground’s songs, performed by Uminski), Erin Fetherston Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 (this « bohemian luxe décontracté » collection, presented with string renditions of The Velvet Underground’s tunes, was inspired by The Velvet Underground and Nico), James Long Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 (the theme of this collection, presented as part of Fashion East, was « a Beatnik Disco in a Russian Velvet Underground »), Luella Spring/Summer 2006 (the jeans and the graphic T-shirts were influenced by The Velvet Underground and Nico), Paul Smith Spring/Summer 2012 (The Velvet Underground’s « All Tomorrow’s Parties » opened this show), Zac Posen for Target Go International (this line, launched on April 25, 2006, was partly inspired by Lou Reed).

Furthermore, Heimstone’s designers, Alix Petit and Delphine Delafon, said that Nico, with her black turtlenecks and her Middle Ages-inspired jewels, was a true fashion icon.
