NEW YORK — Pedestrians on Seventh Avenue will be faced with a roundup of get-out-the vote messages today, from Sean “P. Diddy” Combs’ “Vote or Die” campaign to missives from Nicole Miller and Carmen Marc Valvo.
Eleven designers, including Combs, Miller and Valvo, signed up for the Fashion Center Business Improvement District’s “Voting Is Always in Fashion” program. Their nonpartisan signs will be going up in the windows of the district’s information kiosk at Seventh Avenue and West 39th Street at midday. They will remain up through Nov. 2.
“Our goal is for the fashion community to send a message that voting is cool, hip or just plain important,” said Barbara Blair Randall, the business improvement district’s executive director.
Other participating designers and firms are Kenneth Cole, Phat Farm, Marc Ecko, Betsey Johnson, Rocawear, Eileen Fisher, Stephen Burrows and Sylvia Heisel.
