Sidewalk Catwalk

A handful of major designers are going to hold a runway show on Broadway all summer long. Tommy Hilfiger, Betsey Johnson, Calvin Klein are just a few that will participate. The project, called "Sidewalk Catwalk", will feature mannequins wearing one-of-a-kind creations by the designers. From June 24 until Labor Day, you can find them from Herald Square to Times Square.

Cool idea or waste of money? You decide. Here is the kicker: after the summer ends, the Business Improvement Center who is organizing the project, will auction off each mannequin complete with it's outfit. Perhaps I'm just a cynic but really??? After three months on the street, exposed to the elements and irreverent teenagers, what are these designer "outfits" going to look like? And who in their right mind is going to want to bid on them? Suffice it to say, I'm interested to see how it all plays out.
