STILL ROCKIN’: After shows in London and New York, Fashion Rocks soon will make its debut in Rio. Marc Jacobs and Versace have signed on as the first international fashion brands to participate and Mariah Carey is set to perform. Officially called Oi Fashion Rocks (thanks to sponsor Oi, a Brazilian telecom company), the two-day event will begin Oct. 23 with a charity dinner at the Copacabana Palace, hosted by Brazilian Vogue, followed the next day by the main event, which will take place at a specially built, 6,000-seat structure at the Jockey Club of Rio de Janeiro. “We are going to feature four local designers and four international designers,” said creative director Jason Herbert, who also worked on the show in London. He added that Christian Lamb, Madonna’s stage director, has signed on, and KCD will produce fashion segments and handle international press.
