Fashion Rocks is returning after a six-year hiatus and if you don’t know what we’re talking about then shame on you.
The formerly annual showcase of fashion and music – which has seen everyone from Beyoncé and Justin Timberlake to the Pussycat Dolls perform – was one of the highlights of our annual TV viewing schedule until it got pulled in 2008. Then we had to get invested in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
This year Fashion Rocks will take place at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center during New York Fashion Week on September 9th. Already announced to perform are Jennifer Lopez, Rita Ora, Usher, Pitbull, Afrojack and KISS, so you can bet your bottom dollar that it’ll be the hottest ticket in town.
Also performing are Duran Duran, Miranda Lambert, Nico & Vinz and The Band Perry, while Ryan Seacrest will host, and additional performers will be announced nearer the big event.
The designer line-up – each of whom traditionally dresses the act performing during their runway show – is yet to be revealed.
"When I started the show in '04, fashion and television didn't quite complement each other quite as well as they do today," Fashion Rocks founder and Three Lions Entertainment CEO Richard Beckman told Fashionista.
"It's sort of my baby, I always knew I wanted to bring it back."
Fashion Rocks will air live in the US on CBS on September 9th, with a UK airdate yet to be announced. Tickets for the event go on sale on Friday 1st August at 10am EST via Ticketmaster.
