Rock & Republic’s New York Fashion Week Catwalk Show was held at Cipriani on 42nd Street and apparently cost them $2.5million. For that amount of money they must be counting on shifting a lot of product. These days Rock & Republic is rapidly trying to establish itself as a lifestyle brand complete with a full collection of clothing and accessories. The show reflected this as where previously the emphasis was on denim now it was expanded to include animal prints, leather, fake fur and lots shiny metallic materials – all of it skin tight.
