Strike a Pose with Ben Rose at Buckhead’s Lenox Square
By Laura Carson Miller
One of my happy places, Lenox Square, located in the heart of Buckhead, has collaborated with Atlanta photographer Ben Rose to introduce an intimate glimpse into high fashion in Atlanta. Beginning March 15 and located near the center’s new Gallery Entrance between Cartier and Escada in the Neiman Marcus wing, the exhibit dubbed “Striking Poses” will offer guests a front row seat to some of the city’s signature fashion events. Ooh la la, my friends!
Lenox Square commissioned “Striking Poses” to showcase the city’s stronghold on world-class fashion and the designers who have committed their labels to Atlanta – all of whom call Simon’s Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza home. The photographs capture the essence of beauty, glamour and couture found both on the runway and backstage at the city’s leading fashion events. From graceful movements on the catwalk to intimate backstage moments captured seconds before models take the runway, this exhibit of Rose’s work will leave visitors intrigued and inspired by Atlanta’s exciting and unpredictable fashion scene.
Ben Rose, an Atlanta native, has been behind the camera since 1999. He’s established himself as one of the premier celebrity event photographers in Atlanta, shooting the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Jay-Z, Oscar de la Renta, Manolo Blahnik, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Zac Posen, Miley Cyrus and more. He has been the lead event photographer at Jeffrey Fashion Cares Atlanta since 2009, an annual event now held at Phipps Plaza, and has shot national luxury retailers found at Buckhead’s Simon properties including Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Jeffrey Atlanta, David Yurman, Cartier and Prada.
I can’t wait to see the exhibit. What a fun girls date, a lovely meal, then perusing these stunning photographs. Just another reason to frequent an already wonderful fashion and food mecca, the ultra fabulous Lenox Square!
