NEW YORK -- The Hotel Macklowe, the site of several forthcoming New York designer shows, is negotiating with Sony to have the fashion shows televised live on the giant video screen in Times Square.
(A great idea for traffic safety. Can you just see it? Cabbies ramming into each other. Bicycle messengers going head over handlebars. Sidewalk preachers hypnotized by 10-foot-tall models in miniskirts.)
Michael Kors, Bob Mackie, Mary McFadden, Steven Stolman and Joan Vass are among the designers planning to hold shows at the Macklowe in November.
