Björk’s music and Gerhard Richter’s art have inspired the MSGM Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Show.

Other Björk-inspired collections and some Björk’s collaborations : Alexander McQueen (the late designer made the front cover direction of Björk’s 1997 « Homogenic » album, directed the second video for her 1998 « Alarm Call » single, teamed up with Björk for her performance of « Bachelorette » at the 2003 Fashion Rocks, at London’s Royal Albert Hall ; moreover, Björk sang at Alexander McQueen’s memorial at London’s St Paul’s Cathedral, on September 20, 2010), Jean Paul Gaultier Autumn/Winter 1994-1995 (Björk was one of the models of this show, titled, « The Long Journey / Le Grand voyage », which paid tribute to the Inuit civilization), Johan Ku Spring/Summer 2014 (the dichotomy between fantasy and reality, experienced by Selma, as played by Björk, in Lars von Trier’s « Dancer in the Dark », inspired the 3-D plastic dresses of this show), Oscar de la Renta Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (the raw Mongolia-influenced makeup of this show, by Gucci Westman for Revlon, referenced Björk when she took to the catwalk for Jean Paul Gaultier’s Autumn/Winter 1994-1995 collection), Sophia Kokosalaki (the Greek designer created Björk’s flowing dress for the opening ceremony of Athens’ 2004 Summer Olympic Games).
