Los Angeles-based fashion house Rock & Republic is preparing the Rock Fashion Tour, to commence next month during New York Fashion Week. The tour will also take in London Fashion Week (also in February), the 29th Toronto International Film Festival (in September) and other special events.

Each date will include a fashion show and performances by rock bands and DJs, according to Rock & Republic CEO/chief designer Michael Ball. Participating acts have not been announced.

The tour is expected to cost the 18-month-old company $600,000. Attendance will be invitation-only.
