Wordless Wednesday: Fashion Sidewalk Catwalk

by Migdalia Rivera

New York City’s Fashion Center has created a Fashion sidewalk catwalk. The catwalk features mannequin’s dressed by 30 of the leading fashion designers as well as 2 student design teams from the Fashion Institute of Technology and Parsons The New School for Design. To view this Latinalicious display just take a stroll down Broadway from 42nd Street to 35th Street before Sept. 3 2010.

You can read more about this project and its designers by going to www.sidewalk-catwalk.com.

Below are a few of the pictures I took of the catwalk designs. Aren’t they amazing?

The last one is my fave. I love how they made the belt out of everyday items! Which is your favorite?

Happy WW!

Very cool fashion/art project. Los Angeles did something similar with faceless angels that looked a lot like these mannequins. Artists dressed them up or painted them. They were on sidewalk display all over the county.

Oooohhh, love the mannequins, especially the first one! Give me a few margaritas and I would totally rock it! Thanks for the linky!

They’re fabulous! I love the first one the most, but the belt on the camo net dress is unbelievable! So cool. Thanks for sharing these with us.

I love the flag one! wonderful!

I’ve never been one to understand fashion like this but that first one is adorable. The flag? That’s weird… Perhaps as art on the wall it’s okay but art on the body, not for me!

21 nycgirl0501 July 14, 2010 at 9:24 am

No way! That is awesome! I need to go check it out! I love the first pic with all the flowers & the bow. Also the flag one is pretty cool!

22 MommyNamedApril July 14, 2010 at 9:50 am

Nice! I love it, so fresh!

25 Amy July 14, 2010 at 11:17 am

I love these. I can’t decide whether I like the last one or the flag one more. I wish I could go see them in person, but I’m in CA.

26 Sabrina July 14, 2010 at 11:36 am

Creative and cool.

Wow, these are really neat to look at although the faceless American flag outfit is a little odd.

You changed my whole mindset on WW.

I like the flag, how it was “blowing” in the wind
