displayed


This window display caught my eye because, to me, it looked like the torso was decapitated from the legs and the insides were spilling out. I must commend the display artist for this clever idea. Fashion is not what you wear but what you have inside. In this case it's rolled up shirts, blouses and an extra pair of jeans. Like I always say, let it all hang out!

I really love this shot Edwin. I had the same reaction. Glad you had the reaction to take a photo of it!

Very interesting design indeed. I love window displays too. They can be so creative in interpreting clothes and fashion.

I love the idea me too. You have a good eye (and we know it) but the vendors too.

Great photo and text.
When I saw the thumbnail I too thought it was a decapitated person!

Edwin - your postcard arrived today! Very cool. I will put it in a place of honor in my office.

This is a great picture. You have a perceptive eye. It reminds me of the kind of sculpture you might run into in the Whitney Museum in New York. Right, Ming?

By the way, Edwin, can I return the favor with a photo postcard from St. Louis? One of the Arch pictures, perhaps? Email me if that interests you.

Whoever said clothes don't maketh the man (woman) was obviously nothep to the consumer scene!

I had to look at this photo about three times before figuring it out...actually, I just read your blurb so didn't figure it out for myself at all really! ;o)

Definitely attention grabbing so accolades to the visual merchandiser responsible.

I knew this shot would get the reactions it did. It stopped me dead in my tracks when I saw it and couldn't help laughing and thinking how graphic it looked. Thanks guys :)
