Sidewalk Catwalk by Parsons: The New School for Design: Niyati Karwat

Thirty one-of-a-kind works of art and fashion “walked” down Broadway during the summer of 2010 during the temporary installation of Sidewalk Catwalk. Fashion designers dressed custom Ralph Pucci mannequins in a public art display that attract art devotees and fashionistas alike. At the end of the summer the mannequins were auctioned off and proceeds were donated to NYC- based Materials for the Arts.

 

Fashion designers included: Tommy Hilfiger, Kenneth Cole, Isaac Mizrahi, Nicole Miller, Diane von Furstenburg, Donna Karan, Norma Kamali, Ralph Rucci, Michael Kors, Nanette Lepore, Stephen Burrows, Betsey Johnson, Badgley Mischka, Rachel Roy, Anna Sui, Yeohlee Teng, Carmen Marc Valvo, John Bartlett, Victor Alfaro, Thom Browne, Maria Cornejo, Carlos Falchi, Prabal Gurung, Adam Lippes, Catherine Malandrino, Rebecca Moses, Jill Stuart, Rebecca Taylor, Isabel Toledo, FIT students, and Parsons students.
