Nigel Barker will hold a book signing at the Barracks Row wine shop DCanter on Saturday, Feb. 28, the owners announced. The 545 8th St. SE store will offer a tasting of wines from world fashion capitals, and Barker will sign copies of his new book, “Models of Influence: 50 Women Who Reset the Course of Fashion.”
DCanter agreed to host the event after hearing Barker was looking to introduce his book in D.C., co-owner Michelle Lim Warner said.
“I thought having a book signing in celebration of wine, art and fashion would be fun to host here,” she said. “Our team connected with Barker’s team and the wine tasting-slash-book signing event was born.”
DCanter regularly books their store for fundraisers, baby showers and corporate events, and the owners are open to hosting more celebrity events, Warner said.
Barker’s book contains 200 influential fashion photographs taken from the ’40s to today, featuring everyone from Twiggy to Cara Delevingne.
Tickets for the event scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m. are available online and cost $10 for the wine tasting, and $42 for the tasting and the book.
