Menswear designer and global entrepreneur John Varvatos has teamed up with producer Derik Murray and Network Entertainment to create original content for television and film focusing on the worlds of music, fashion, and pop culture.
The mission of the partnership is to create premium content that will be distributed globally on multiple platforms and will be designed to feature complementary merchandising, publishing, sponsorship, and special event opportunities. One of the first projects to be developed on the Varvatos and Network Entertainment slate is a series based upon Varvatos’ bestselling book, “John Varvatos: Rock in Fashion.”
“My lifelong passion with music, and the eclectic style of the many artists I admire, was the catalyst for my interest in fashion, and my love of film and photography is a natural extension of my spirit of creativity,” said Varvatos. “The opportunity to partner with Derik Murray in creating and delivering unparalleled content to a global audience ensures that our collaborations will be crafted with superior quality that is the hallmark of Network Entertainment’s work, which in turn delivers the foundation to co-create works of lasting importance that speak directly to my ambitions.”
Added Murray: “John Varvatos’ artistic and cultural sensibility is deeply rooted in music, freedom of expression and old world quality, which he has harnessed in the formation of a global menswear brand with a DNA that is an authentic extension of John’s creativity. The opportunity to collaborate with John Varvatos has quickly inspired a slate of projects in development that we are both excited and honored to co-create together.”
