Richie Sambora is to launch his fashion range in the UK, after performing a gig with his band Bon Jovi.
The guitarist will debut WTB, the line he created with designer-musician Nikki Lund, at an exclusive fashion show at London's Indigo2 on June 23.
Bon Jovi are currently playing a 12-date residency at London's O2 Arena.
Already spotted on Miley Cyrus, Carrie Underwood and Heather Locklear, WTB (White Trash Beautiful), which premiered at Los Angeles Fashion Week in March, will be available in stores this autumn and online from July.
Richie has talked about how he was inspired to design a fashion line after seeing Nikki's wardrobe.
"Jon (Bon Jovi) and I had this idea for a song White Trash Beautiful and I said this song sounds like a clothing line - Nikki had an amazing line of clothes called Eccentric Symphony and I was a fan," he said.
"I called her up and it all started from there. Her talent is never ending - she is a genius," he added.
