Demi Lovato’s stylist rebuilt many of her Future Now tour outfits with added zippers and fabric to ensure efficient costume changes.

Demi Lovato wanted her Future Now Tour costumes to reflect the edgy vibe of the show.

The Skyscraper singer and her long-time friend Nick Jonas are part way through their Future Now joint tour, which promotes her fifth studio album Confident and his third record Last Year Was Complicated.

The duo is known for their strong vocal performances and dynamic stage presence, and wanted their onstage ensembles to reflect their musical style accordingly.

For the tour, Jealous singer Nick is decked out in Dsquared2 exclusively, while Demi called on fashion brands Commes Des Garcons, Michael Costello and Saint Laurent for keys pieces, such as black and white embellished bodysuits she wears, as well as thigh-high suede boots from footwear maker Gianvito Rossi. Speaking about her outfits, Demi says the styles are an extension of the “overall feeling” and “vibe” of the show.

“I always try to push the envelope with my music, and that’s also reflected in what I wear,” she told Footwear News.

To ensure that Demi’s ensembles were wearable and could undergo speedy quick changes, her stylist Avo Yermagyan had to rebuild many of the outfits and shoes, adding in fabric, gussets, hooks and eyes and heavy-duty zippers.

And as Nick and Demi share the stage at different points in the show, Avo was also tasked with making sure the outfits complemented each other in an effortless way.

“I wanted to make sure that the looks for each of them stands alone and they are true to their personal style,” he explained. “They still need to work together, because the show is so fluid.”

The North American leg of the Future Now Tour kicked off in June (16) and ends September in Inglewood, California.
