Glamorama brings rock 'n' roll to the runway

Glamorama's “Fashion Rocks” theme puts a new spin on rocker style for fall.

Rock ‘n’ roll is not dead. Just ask Paul Anthony, who is styling an entire fashion show for Macy’s Glamorama to bring out the rocker in all of us.

The 22nd annual incarnation of the department store’s fall fashion extravaganza — held Friday at the State Theatre — will feature performances by Jason Derulo and Before You Exit, plus clothing by Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Hello Kitty and others.

Of the hundreds of looks that will boogie across the runway, there are a few familiar themes: male-inspired clothing for women, lots of black and a bit of attitude. For Anthony, being a rocker means different things to different people.

“It’s all about showing off your personality and who your inner rock star is,” said Anthony, Glamorama’s fashion director. “Are you Beyoncé? Are you a David Bowie?”

The slick, fast-paced production always makes Glamorama one of the best-attended fashion events of the year. We got a sneak peek at the fall trends coming straight off the Glamorama runway.
