Outdoor Fashion Show (Including Recycled Unbrellas) Attracts Crowd in Downtown Brooklyn

A crowd formed in the walkway between Morton's The Steakhouse and the Brooklyn Marriott in Downtown Brooklyn late yesterday for an outdoor runway fashion show, part of a Brooklyn wedding showcase held at Morton's. The fashions were created by local designers, music and hors d’oeuvres were provided, and everyone seemed to be having a swell time. (Tourists going by on tour buses on Adams Street craned their necks to see what the party was.)

The top two dresses shown above are created by designer Catherine Edouard Charlot from HIMANE, and are made from recycled materials.

The wedding duds shown above are also created by Catherine Edouard Charlot; note that the man's tuxedo is made from recycled umbrellas.

These next dresses shown are made by Yvonne Chu of Kimera Designs.

Local wedding vendors were showing their wares inside Morton's at an affair catered by Morton's and Love Brooklyn Tours & Events. The point of the event was to show that you don't have to leave Brooklyn to plan your wedding. More here.
