I have to admit, New York is a pretty kickass city. You wouldn’t see this kind of stunt in Boise, Idaho. Nor would you want to. I’m kidding, I’m kidding, don’t send me hate mail!
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Lingerie creator Heather Thomson got a jump-start on the New York Fashion Week, turning to some of the city’s best pole dancers to display her new line of Yummie Tummie underwear on Thursday.
Heh, heh, “pole.” God, I am so immature.
Clothes designers will present their spring collections at the annual fashion show that opens on Friday along catwalks under tents in New York’s Bryant Park.
Thomson chose a novel way to promote her lingerie. She held a competition of dancers who perform gymnastics-like routines on brass poles at some of Manhattan’s poshest strip clubs and picked eight to model her Yummie Tummie Shapewear.
The lower level of the West End Cafe near Times Square was transformed into a gentlemen’s club where the dancers — four at a time — climbed the poles and turned upside down, this way and that, wearing long-line tank tops and camisoles. (H/T - )
