This week, Goodwill headed out to the streets of Manhattan for a surprise promotion! During our “model walk,” some professional models strut their stuff through New York City dressed in some of the trendiest outfits from our Goodwill stores.
Wednesday, our visual merchandiser Victor Lopez, styled our models Chantel Martinez and Barbra Santana in chic looks from the Goodwill Stuyvesant Store. The Stuyvesant Store is located at: 1704 2nd Avenue, at 88th Street; Manhattan, NY 10128. (P: 212-831-1830.)
After browsing around the Goodwill store, the models headed outside to show off their new looks to the Upper East Side. Many New Yorkers turned their heads as these glamorous girls walked by in the fashionable outfits with their Goodwill signs. Some local construction workers even stopped us to take a picture.
After a fun photo shoot in the city, our models returned to the Goodwill store to shop around and talk to some of our customers. One shopper, Chelsea, said she comes to this Goodwill frequently to find unique items. “There are some great outfits here that people wouldn’t expect,” she said of the models’ high fashion looks.
Chantel says she has been coming to Goodwill ever since high school when she bought a variety of outfits for some of her first acting and modeling projects. “Fashionistas love to shop at stores like Goodwill,” she says, “You never want to run into someone wearing the same outfit as you, and here with so many unique clothes you’ll almost never have that problem.”
Be sure to look out for some more models decked out in Goodwill gear as we continue our NYC model walks this summer!
