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.
