Wardrobe Wednesday: ‘New York at Christmas



here’s something simply incandescent when we board a red double-decker bus for a whirlwind holiday tour around Manhattan during the Christmas Spectacular. From sailing down 5th Avenue taking in all the beautiful, must-see sights to coming together in Times Square under a rainbow of pulsing neon lights, there’s more to “New York at Christmas” than meets the eye.

Bundled in dashing winter coats (the plaid on the coat is made by hand—the red and green fabric is cut into strips and sewn into a plaid pattern!) over sparkly, festive colors of christmas dresses, the costume, designed by Martin Pakledinaz, does nothing but dazzle and delight. At the beginning of the season, we’re put into our lineup and assigned a color, which means we could be red one year and green the next!
