This way sound a little crazy, but Florence Welch thinks her pink chiffon dress is haunted!
The Dog Days Are Over singer explained in a recent interview:
We bought it from a vintage store in New York. It was a party dress from the 1930s in the basement, and flood damaged so they weren’t going to sell it, and it was just going to go to rot. But we rescued it and restored it, and when we played at Somerset House it sort of came to life around me as if the dress was fulfilling some sort of past dream. I love clothes that have a history, I’ve always liked pretending to be a character from the past, ever since I was a kid…but now I’m not dressing as a Roman emperor or someone from Little House on the Prairie….well not all the time.
Haunted or not, Flo loves to perform in dresses that are flowy (hint, hint for those designing her a stage outfit):
Stevie Nicks said that it was good to wear something loose that flows around you, and I kind of agree with that. It’s nice to feel that your outfit is doing a performance as well, and what you wear really dictates how you play.
We like how her fashion and music are mixed together. It makes her style more unique.
