NEW YORK, NY—(June 27, 2007) New York Fashion Week’s hottest ticket, Fashion Rocks™, returns for its fourth year to the legendary Radio City Music Hall on September 6, 2007. Music’s A-list performers and the world’s hottest fashions will once again share the stage in a star-studded extravaganza celebrating the relationship between fashion and music. The concert will air the following night, Friday, September 7, 2007 in a two-hour special on the CBS television network (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).
The show, hosted by Entourage star Jeremy Piven, will feature performances by Aerosmith, Alicia Keys, Avril Lavigne, Carrie Underwood, Fall Out Boy, Fergie, Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, Ludacris, Martina McBride, Santana and Usher.
“The synergy between fashion and music is even more pronounced now than it was when we first created Fashion Rocks™ three years ago, said Condé Nast Media Group president, Richard D. Beckman. “Each year the line between the two becomes increasingly blurred as more musicians launch fashion lines and more designers align themselves with musicians. Fashion Rocks™ 2007 will feature outstanding performers from both worlds who span the spectrum of musical genres and fashion styles and bring to life that special relationship.”
The Fashion Rocks™ magazine will also return this year. Slated to reach over 60 million readers and filled with even more editorial content, Fashion Rocks™ magazine will accompany the September issue of 17 Condé Nast titles. Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and Contributing Editor Jonathan Van Meter will again take the helm as editorial director and editor-in-chief, respectively.
New to the scene is OBO, an international fashion production company. OBO will be producing the highly anticipated fashion segments that appear throughout the concert.
OBO most recently produced the 2007 Victoria’s Secret fashion show, as well as shows for Zegna, Marchesa, Tommy Hilfiger, Chloé and Behnaz Sarafpour, among others.
