Varvatos menswear fashion and accessories are globally known for their stylish, stunning and alluring designs that are sought season after season. I have a shirt and trust me, the man is a genius when it comes to fashion.
Over the past several years, the designer’s passion for music and writing had turned Varvatos into a leading author and somewhat musical talent scout as he brings very talented musicians to his Bowery Store in NY to perform for rock music fans. I’ve been to a few concerts and it is a great concept and the musicians are very talented!
Varvatos’s new book Rock in Fashion, (which is selling like hotcakes) is a collection of his own rock style designs and personal notes from his years of designing memorable clothes. You are definitely going to want to get this book folks!
The creator and organizer of NY Fashion Week, Fern Mallis is to the fashion world what curry is to rice- you can’t have one without the other. Known as the “industry game changer”, Mallis has been the backbone for many iconic designers and the main organizer of their runway shows for years. The successful and well-liked iconic business personality is now president of her own company, Fern Mallis LLC and continues to create Fashion Week around the world in major cities. Mallis also hosts her own show on the SiriusXM flagship celebrity talk channel, Stars called “Fashion Insiders with Fern Mallis.”
I will also on record saying she is one of the nicest and most helpful people in the fashion industry I know.
During the on stage conversation, Mallis , who is an excellent interviewer, gets Varvatos to open up about his family, his humble beginnings in Detroit, his career in fashion and of course his passions which include music, writing and designing cars!
