18 Days: Fashion Designers Take On Football

medium hairstyles Fashion Meets Football SBNY blog The 48 helmets were created by 48 designers, including Billy Reid, Betsey Johnson, Kenneth Cole, Todd Snyder and Donna Karan. They will be unveiled in the Bloomingdale’s windows on 59th Street and Lexington Avenue in Manhattan starting today at 5 p.m. ET. “With the Super Bowl coming to the backyard of our flagship store in New York, we consider it our obligation as a brand to participate,” Frank Berman, Bloomingdale’s executive vice president of marketing, said Tuesday. “Other stores may do functional athletic merchandise, but for us it was more about creating a buzz and a real injection of Bloomingdale’s into a very significant pop culture moment.” Berman said a helmet was chosen as the item to work with because of its uniqueness and for the different treatments that could be applied by the designers, such as sequins, crystals and feathers. The artists were given a blank helmet and a Super Bowl XLVIII logo to use as the starting point for creating their products.
