see it: sidewalk catwalk

After work I walked over to Herald Square to check out Sidewalk Catwalk. The parade of mannequins, stretching from Macy's Herald Square up to Times Square each sport a look by a NYC designer. The designers were also encouraged to use materials sourced in the Fashion District. The 32 designs will be on display through Labor Day; while most are made of durable materials, some more traditional dresses may be worse for wear from the weather come August. On that note, get out and see these lovelies for yourself this weekend while they're in pristine shape!

Donna Karan

Maria Cornejo, Betsy Johnson

 Michael Kors 

Elie Tahari (my favorite of the bunch!)

The mennequins are in the center median on the street, between the bike lane and the car lane. I encountered several irate cabbies and bikers, so just watch your step while you're checking it out!
