Madison Avenue will have a prominent role in the 7th annual NYCxDESIGN by sponsoring Madison Avenue: High Fashion & Historic Preservation – An Architectural Walking Tour with the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

Design and fashion enthusiasts will discover how high fashion retail has been incorporated to create a contemporary shopping destination.

Madison Avenue BID will also present an outdoor art exhibition by students of the School of Visual Art’s 3D Design & BFA Interior Design Departments: “Hemlines From Skylines: Architectural Fashion Sculptures On Madison Avenue.”
Each artist selected one iconic NYC skyscraper or institution as inspiration for a dress. Displayed in eight foot “glass cases” the sculptures celebrate 1930s icons while also featuring modern architectural developments and monuments in NYC. Curated by 3D Design Chair Kevin O’Callaghan, and BFA Interior Design Chair Dr. Carol Bentel, in partnership with the Madison Avenue BID. This exhibition will be on view from May 10 – 22.
