Fashion photographer Robert W. Mercer, Jr. will launch his 2015 Ripped Genes and Ripped Janes calendars on Sept. 26 (rippedgenes.net), the eighth edition of the male series and the second edition of the female version, Ripped Janes. It will take place at The Engineers Club at the Garrett-Jacobs Mansion, 11 W. Mount Vernon Place in Baltimore.
The Baltimore native is well known in the area for producing fashion events.
“I am especially proud of the maturation of my calendars, with this next set presenting equally interesting, photogenic and diverse men and women,” Mercer told the Blade.
Besides the fashion show, there will be a calendar signing, open bar, music and dancing, and a “meet and greet” with the models.
Doors open at 8 p.m. and the fashion show starts at 9 p.m. A calendar signing takes place at 9:30 p.m. An after party will last until closing.
Tickets are $45 for general admission and $50 for VIP and can be purchased online at rippedgenes.net/Calendar_Release_Party.html.
