NEW YORK — The new Elie Tahari store at 510 Fifth Avenue here is not a conventional retail space. Passersby may glimpse pattern cutters and sewers plying their trades in the oversize windows of the store, or witness a photo shoot inside, with models posing and then disappearing into the conveniently situated fitting rooms to change outfits.
There’s also a circular 30-ton Mosler vault door in one window — now flanked by mannequins wearing Tahari’s cheery summer collection — a vestige of the landmarked Modernist building’s history as the home of Manufacturers Trust Co. bank and, more recently, J.P. Morgan Chase.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
