In addition to his enormous roster of musical collaborations, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer is no stranger to the fashion world. Having already appeared in several fashion magazines by the age of fourteen, the guitar kid has even participated in a Lady Gaga fashion video, directed by famed photographer Bruce Weber. Weber, known for his work in ad campaigns for Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Revlon, and Gianni Versace, as well as his work for Vogue, GQ, Vanity Fair, and Rolling Stone magazines, was so impressed with the Brandon’s style–and music–that he tapped Niederauer for a current campaign with Versace.
