Along Broadway, from 35th Street to 41st Street, mannequins have been dressed in designs created specifically for the sidewalk catwalk. Designers include Jason Wu, Norma Kamali, Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenberg, Betsey Johnson and other local favorites. This is a public art project put together by the Fashion Center Business Improvement District to showcase the talent coming from the Garment District as well as the fabrics produced locally. The pink slips will be coming off this Thursday, June 24 and will be on display until September 3.
On a side note, while taking pictures and inspecting the mannequins, I was sort of surprised not to see any type of security guarding them. Anyways, can't wait to see what some of our favorite and outrageous designers have up their sleeves . . . or should I say, under their covers.
