Fashion Show Turns Broome Street into a Runway

On Saturday afternoon, there were more than the usual number of beautiful people on Broome Street between Orchard and Ludlow. The Lower East Side Business Improvement District staged an outdoor fashion show featuring clothing from local designers and boutiques. Models moved among four small stages in the middle of the closed-off block, accompanied by techno music and followed by many amateur and professional shutterbugs.

Broome Street's antiquated tenement buildings provided the backdrop for modern styles.

The show featured 48 outfits on models from four agencies: Major, Muse, Next and Axis.
