Strolling around the Promenade of the Koch Theater in Lincoln Center you can walk on the photos of the dancers………or you can walk around the balconies and look down at other people walking on the dancers.  JR calls this a dance that the audience creates for themselves.

The Boys of FASHION WEEK •Fall 2014• Strut Their Stuff

These young men are not the models who walk the runway……….they are the cuties who show up to watch the Runway Shows……….and yes, some are cute enough to be ON the runway.

GLITZ  and GLAM is a must……..for their shoes……sneakers and boots………..and socks.  For Sneaker collectors…..[called “Sneakerheads”‘]…….shoes are a must-have fashion item.  Nike and Adidas pay celebrities mega millions a year to get their name on the sneakers.  Artistically modified shoes sell for up to $700.

You want a fame name……you gotta pay for it.
