The Fashion Walk of Fame on Seventh Avenue –- you’ve probably walked on it, but now you get to vote on it!
The Fashion Center BID has launched a public opinion voters’ poll on
their website, fashioncenter.com, for this year’s Fashion Walk of
For the first time, the organizers of the Walk of Fame want to know who you think should be forever immortalized on Manhattan’s Fashion Walk of Fame. Whether you are a “Plain Jane” or a “Stylin’ Fashionista” —will get a chance to vote on nominees to be the next inductees on the Walk of Fame.
You will be able to choose from a list of 35 designer finalists who were chosen by the Fashion Walk of Fame Selection Committee. A running tally will appear and the final industry vote and public’s choice will be announced later this month.
“This vote will give the public at large a chance to see how close they come to what the industry experts say” said Barbara Randall, Executive Director of The Fashion Center BID.
Over the course of the Walk of Fame project, 24 notable New York designers were given this honor and decorative plaques acknowledging these designers are embedded in the sidewalks along the East Side of Seventh “Fashion” Avenue from 41st Street to 35th Street. Each plaque displays an original sketch by the designer, a brief description of the designer’s contribution to fashion and the designer’s signature.
