the giant button and the garment worker
rain or shine, the Jewish steamster is hard at work, just a few meters away from the giant button & needle of the fashion district information booth
if I had a better zoom, you would be able to see the little rain drop about to fall from his nose ;)
Fashion Week is starting today until the 12th. If you want to know all about the Spring 2008 collections, head to the Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week website.
It's only fitting that I would show you two sculptures of the Garment District:
• the Garment Worker, by Judith Weller, 1984
• the giant button-and-needle sculpture, designed by Pentagram, leaning against the Fashion Center Business Improvement District's Information Kiosk on Seventh Avenue and 39th Street.
