During this year’s Fashion’s Night Out on September 10, music fans can join the ranks of rock royalty and have their portraits taken by rock photographers Mick Rock and Robert Knight at award-winning menswear designer John Varvatos’ fashion boutiques in New York and Los Angeles. Guests who make a purchase of $300 or more will be given their own photo session with one of the photographers, depending on the location.
Mick Rock will be in the Soho boutique (122 Spring St., New York, 212-965-0700). Known as “The Man Who Shot the 70s”, he has photographed images for rock legends including David Bowie, The Ramones, Joan Jett, and Blondie. More recently, he has worked with The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Snoop Dogg, and Lady Gaga. His new book, EXPOSED: Faces of Rock ‘n Roll (to be published in October 2010) collects over 220 of Mick’s best photos across nearly 40 years.
Robert Knight will be in the West Hollywood location (8800 Melrose Ave., California 310-859-2791). A 42 year veteran, he has worked with rock royalty such as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Jeff Beck, and U2. He’s the subject of the soon to be released film Rock Prophecies, and has published the book Rock Gods.
Fashion’s Night Out is a worldwide event created to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, and boost the industry’s economy.
