This Summer is all about celebrating fashion, pride and self confidence. At ShopDrop, where we celebrate affordable high-end designer clothing, we just couldn’t resist. We decided to have a good time, and so we set out to Union Square Park to stage an improv fashion show.
This is how it worked. We showed up in the park with some chalk, drew a ShopDrop logo on the ground and two lines, which marked the ‘runway’. We turned on some music, pulled out some kind bars, donned some awesome sample sale attire, and started walking over to random park guests to ask them if they felt like modeling in our improv fashion show.
Of course, we got a few people who looked at us as if we fell from the moon, but for the most part we created a fun distraction from the stressful life many New Yorkers lead. What was awkward at first became comic relief in the end, and all those who modeled in our show were rolling with laughter by the time they got to the end of the aisle.
‘Special, that’s what I feel,’ said Rich, one of our models. A woman walked down with her two puppies, and a group of friends with flowers rocked the runway as well. We are going to try a bigger improv show in a month. If you want to walk or just be there, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line of IMPROV FASHION SHOW.
