′Think New York and you’ll think either theater, fashion or finance. Theater has Broadway, finance has Wall Street with its iconic bull, and fashion has Seventh or Fashion Avenue.
Did you know that Fashion Avenue has a Fashion Walk of Fame?
Established in 1999 by the Fashion Center Business Improvement District (BID), the Fashion Walk of Fame celebrates American designers who have influenced fashion worldwide. Twenty-eight designers have been inducted into the Walk of Fame to date. Each has a bronze plaque that is engraved with a description of the designer’s contribution, and an original sketch. Each bears the designer’s signature. The plaques are embedded in the sidewalk on Fashion Avenue from 35th to 41st Street.
