Working the Sidewalk Catwalk, in Midtown

Sidewalk Catwalk, NYC
Photo by myself around 40th Street and Broadway, in Midtown.

The above photo was taken just steps away from Bryant Park, the home of New York Fashion Week, and the Garment District. Mannequins wearing designer creations lined Broadway in an installation called Sidewalk Catwalk.

Thirty-two mannequins are displayed, wearing fashions designed by Tommy Hilfinger, Diane Von Furstenberg and Norma Kamali, among others. Above, a woman points out a design by Isabel Toledo.

People were gawking at the designs and posing with the models, which are displayed within a pedestrian zone, along with large umbrellas and cafe chairs.

The clothing is being auctioned off, but will be on exhibit until September 3rd. Proceeds will benefit Materials for the Arts, which provides donated materials to New York City schools.

You can bid on the mannequins on their ebay page, here.

For more about the Sidewalk Catwalk exhibit, see their website here.

I like the third pink one....the 'headwear' in photo number one would take some skills to maneuver... :)

Love those images. Great job! Especially like the way the one person's colors match the "dummy"
