If you’re like me (a total psycho) you have a running list of Halloween costumes in your phone at all times that you add to whenever you think of a terrible pun or a slightly obscure fictional character. But more likely, you’re a normal person, and you haven’t given Halloween much thought until this week. (Or you haven’t thought of it at all, in which case, you suffer from a slight lack of whimsy.)
Why was famed fashion designer John Varvatos hanging with legendary bearded rockers Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill of ZZ Top and photographer Mick Rock at Nordstrom (520 N. Michigan) Oct. 22? The Detroit native was in town to promote his first book, Rock in Fashion, a retrospective look at music’s most stylish stars (including photos by Rock, and fashion from ZZ Top). Splash got the chance to sit down with Varvatos, Gibbons, Hill and Rock to learn more about the worlds of rock ’n’ roll and fashion colliding.
