#Madonna Macy's Madonnaland 1985 with Andy Warhol








Long before there was the Truth or Dare or the Material Girl line at Macy's there was Madonnaland back in 1985.  Andy Warhol was there at the opening as well as Maripol, MTV and, of course, Jeananne DiFranco. 

 Everybody, just everybody...

  1. Wow! How awesome!! Never saw that piece. Did they just add it to MTV or has it been there all along? The winner seems cool, but she only looked like Madonna with the sunglasses on.

    I want everything that was in that Madonnaland!!!!

    MORE! MORE!! MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. THANK YOU SO MUCH PUDD! I was always curious about the "Madonnaland" in Macy's. I remember the wanna be contest back in 85 but they never really showed any of the merchandise that was being sold. Later on in the Virgin tour and at the height of MADONNAMANIA. Wasn't the clothes line called Yazoo? Correct me if I'm wrong.

  4. Sorry, but I gotta ask. What if anything did you purchase at the Virgin Tour? There were the two posters that were amazing and I would love to have owned. Also, would you please post those photos of you dressing like Madonna that you posted on Madonnamad several years ago. They were so good!

    Love

    1. It would terrific if accurate.

      Jellybean didn't write Holiday, a couple of the Thompson Twins did and I don't think Madonna wrote Lucky Star about Mark Kamins. lol.
