I Heart Foreigner: Meet Charlotte Ronson & Mick Jones

Looking for ironic 1980's band T's? Want to attend a designer/celebrity appearance and get a free shirt? Want to commemorate one of Fashion Herald's first concerts, which was, if I remember correctly, Lover Boy opening up for...

Foreigner. Or maybe it was Foreigner opening up for Journey. It was a long time ago. Anyway, Mick Jones, famed Foreigner guitarist and songwriter, and his stepdaughter, designer Charlotte Ronson, will be at JCPenney Manhattan Mall this Thursday, June 17th, from 5pm - 7pm. They'll be giving away limited-edition T's* ** inspired by the legendary band's album art. This double appearance has good Father's Day potential for you 20-somethings.

I don't think the new dad in my family (husband) has ever seen Foreigner. Many, many times in the past have I been forced to defend my attendance at this first concert to punk rock and metal friends. Of course, their first shows were always Black Flag or The Bad Brains. But now the Ronsons have deemed Foreigner hip and I am free at last. Give it time, kids, as in fashion all things once deemed uncool will someday be reborn as hipster chic.

*limited quantities so come early
**Update: There is no T-shirt giveaway! The PR people apologize for the incorrect information, but Charlotte Ronson and Mick Jones will be signing autographs and taking photos for fans. T-shirts retail for $26, but three styles are currently available online for $9.99.
