Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 3, 2009
Fashion mogul and entrepreneur Christian Audigier kicked off the opening day of the annual MAGIC Marketplace in style with a high-energy presentation of new designs for his collection of labels featuring models, dancers and a guest performance by Interscope Records' underground glam rap sensation Mickey Avalon. An array of leggy and hard-bodied models and fashionable kids hit the runway to reveal the new looks in denims, street wear, kids and swimwear from the Ed Hardy, Christian Audigier, Crystal Rock, and Paco Chicano lines. Closing out the afternoon show, a dashing Christian Audigier appeared to welcome the crowd of fashion and industry guests and the effortlessly cool Mickey Avalon rocked the stage. Surprisingly, the show was closed with pyrotechnics confetti explosions with Christian Audigier and Don Ed Hardy walking down the center stage and taking a bow.
Avalon performed hits and fan favorites "Jane Fonda," "So Rich, So Pretty," "Mr. Right" and sneak previews of two new songs, "Fast Life" and "Stroke Me" from his highly anticipated second album featuring new collaborations with Kid Rock and Travis Barker and production by mega-hit producer Dr. Luke. Known for his cult following and non-stop tour schedule, the rapper recently came off a 20-city run on the "Blazed and Confused" summer tour alongside Snoop Dogg and Slightly Stoopid. Next up Avalon is set to release a new single to radio this month and put the finishing touches on his album scheduled for a February 2010 release.
In his trademark larger-than-life style, the Audigier brand was highly visible at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Complete with the elaborate grunge-chic Christian Audigier stage, multiple booths, custom Christian Audigier cars on display, and an Audigier Brand Management sky box lounge to oversee operations, Audigier continues to thrive on effective branding and setting trends in mainstream fashion. The bi-annual MAGIC Marketplace ran through September 2, 2009.
