DKNY JEANS presents “In my stairwell” by Mark Seliger at ART BASEL

December 1, 2005- MIAMI: DKNY JEANS will host an event to celebrate In My Stairwell, a collection of 83 portraits shot by award winning celebrity photographer Mark Seliger. In My Stairwell is a collection of famous subjects from the arts and cultural, music and film worlds, all who have been photographed in his Charles Street studio stairwell. The event will take place at Miami’s SkyBar at the Shore Club hotel during the famed international art show, Art Basel.

Hosted by DKNY JEANS, Mark will introduce his book and collection of work to an audience of artists, industry colleagues and celebrities. Denim is the universal symbol of style among generations and DKNY JEANS is at the center of the industry. With their youthful energy and artistic sensibility, DKNY JEANS is passionate about supporting the arts and what better place to do it than Art Basel. “I am especially thrilled to have DKNY JEANS host the launch party for my new book, In My Stairwell and am, of course, extremely honored to exhibit my work during Art Basel,” said Mark Seliger. The merger of fashion and art will set the stage for In My Stairwell, this most recent addition to Mark’s roster of published books, which already include Physiognomy, When They Came To Take My Father, Voices of the Holocaust, and most recently Lenny Kravitz/Mark Seliger. The book features creative legends and luminaries ranging from Bruce Springsteen to Chuck Close and Cindy Sherman, as well as today’s vanguard like Chris Martin from Coldplay and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Like the featured celebrities, DKNY JEANS allows its wearer to be a chameleon, offering something for the most conservative of personalities to the edgiest of styles. DKNY JEANS collections offers something for every moment, every mood. (In My Stairwell was released in October 2005 by Rizzoli and Art Basel will serve as the first official launch event for the book).
Mark Seliger’s professional roster includes numerous music videos, commercials and projects with artists ranging from Lenny Kravitz to Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger to Britney Spears and companies from Universal Pictures to Sony Music. Combined with his current work with Conde Nast’s GQ and Vanity Fair and his role as chief photographer for Rolling Stone for over a decade, it is a natural fit for DKNY JEANS to support Mark and his work. “DKNY JEANS reflects an urban rock and roll energy and a rebellious spirit, and Mark Seliger’s amazing work perfectly captures that very essence. The company is honored to sponsor such a legend for his book launch at Art Basel in Miami,” said Susan Davidson, President of DKNY JEANS.
