"Music and fashion relate because both art forms are extremely passionate," Diddy said in an interview with I Got Shotgun during New York City's fashion week. "They're about evolving, being forward and having a certain level of creativity. Music and fashion go together. You can't have one without the other in all honesty. You can't have a great recording artist without having some great clothes and you can't have some great clothes without some great music to go behind it."
