FF Field Trip: Sidewalk Catwalk Part 1!

Team Funky Fanny's took a Field Trip to strut down the Sidewalk Catwalk,
a public fashion event celebrating the NYC Fashion District.
We also enjoyed a nice lunch at Schnippers, famous for their comfort food!!
I'm talking jumbo burgers, golden french fries, and frothy milkshakes!!
Yum, Yum and Yummy!

We strolled down Broadway to the exhibit which featured over
30 different designers, adorning custom made Ralph Pucci mannequins (not related to designer Emilio Pucci), and each with their own unique twist and custom design.

Take a peek at some of the awesomeness Team FF encountered...

FYI: DO NOT touch the mannequins! Guards are on 24/hr patrol

FeistyFanny was just being...well you know FEISTY!!
Don't worry she kept her hands to herself...the entire time! haha

FIT students Christopher C. and Ariel P. made a contribution of their own...
paying homage to the Garment District that keeps our fashion world spinning!!
"Welcome to Fashion Ave"

Diane Von Furstenburg hand painted her mannequin with
her own rendition of the "cheetah print" by using a purple and black color-way.

and left an everlasting impression on me with the saying
"Love is Life...-Diane"

Whew!All that delicious fashion had us hungry for delicious LUNCH!
Pitstop at The Vintage Wondergirl's fav spot for DELISH Cookies n Cream Milkshakes!!

Bellies full and ready for more fashion pleaseeee!

Catherine Malandrino
went patriotic along with a few other designers who showed their love for
America by designing pieces inspired by the American Flag.

The Vintage Wondergirl and Foxy Fanny salute you too!

Carlos Falchi is known for using exotic skins on his famous handbags.
He covered his mannequin in snakeskin from HEAD to TOE
and little sayings like "Rock n Roll", "LOVE", and

"But I like it" inscribed on her skin!
This one has to be my favorite mannequin of them all because
it's fun, edgy, and artistically creative.

It wouldn't be classic Betsey Johnson if her mannequin didn't scream
Bright funky fun, flowers, and yumminess all around!!

Betsey's hot pink mannequin adorned with a platinum blonde wig, custom belt made for real flowers, and sharpie painted Gladiator sandals!
um WOW! Gotta Love her!!

"You get what you give"

Pictures of Betsey with her grandchildren!! XoXo

Our Team FF Field Trip was quite exciting! So much to see and take in....
Part 2 coming soon! Stay tuned!
Until then..
Go with some of your favorite ladies and see
"Sidewalk Catwalk" for yourselves!
There's plenty of tables and chairs for a nice afternoon lunch with the mannequins...haha

Peace/Love/Free Hugs
