Sidewalk Catwalk

Today, when I got off the subway at Times Square, I noticed a dressed up mannequin on the sidewalk. After taking another look, I realized that mannequins were spaced out all along Broadway and Seventh Avenue (Fashion Avenue). These mannequins are part of a project called Sidewalk Catwalk, where 32 designers created mannequins to be part of a public-art exhibition that celebrates fashion avenue and the industry itself. I was intrigued, so I walked along most of the street and took some pictures of my favorites.

Badgley Mischka's mannequin

Carlos Falchi's mannequin

John Bartlett's Mannequin

Kenneth Cole's mannequin

Nanette Lepore's mannequin (my personal favorite...its undeniably fabulous)

Things like this remind me why I want to be in this industry. It is very cool to see designers uniting to celebrate fashion and everything it represents. And best of all, come September, all of these mannequins will be auctioned off for charity. Wouldn't one of these make a lovely addition to my apartment next school year? I can dream, right?

The mannequins are awesome...what a concept. I love seeing New York through your eyes and printed word...and I'm sure your apartment would look super with one of mannequins in it.
