Mirrors, plants and creepy old dolls abound at Jeff Pattie’s one-of-a-kind lending library, whose walls are scribbled with vows of affection by John Galliano and Betsey Johnson, among other fans. Despite the rows of museum-quality Edwardian clothing (including an embroidered riding jacket worth $5,000), it’s the rock-groupie aesthetic that dominates. Pattie stocks a deep inventory of rainbow-bright ’60s and ’70s frocks, by such fashion giants as Stephen Burrows ($3,000–$5,000) and Ossie Clark ($5,000–$10,000). In-house stylist Nick Michael can help you put together a rock & roll look for the ages—or at least the night. Pricing depends on the item and length of rental; there is a minimum fee of $250.
