Who doesn’t love Snoopy? The fashion industry certainly does! Snoopy & Belle in Fashion – a traveling art exhibit of the well dressed beagles – premiered at New York Fashion Week in September of 2014. Since then, it has been enchanting international audiences in NYC, Amsterdam, Paris, Milan, Mexico City and Tokyo every year.
In case you don’t know, Snoopy has a super cute sister named Belle. Belle lives in Paris and she’s got her paw on the pulse of fashion. Over 60 top designers from around the globe have created custom looks for these adorable famous beagles. This famous duo is on display in the financial district’s Brookfield Place’s Winter Garden – 64 Snoopy and Belle doll pairs are impeccably outfitted by various designers for this traveling exhibition.
You can even download an app (Snoopy & Belle In Fashion on itunes ) which gives you a tour through the adorable installation, providing insider information, VIP access to your favorite looks and exclusive content as you walk through the carefully curated displays.
My 6 year old, both a fan of fashion and Snoopy LOVED walking though this fun installation. She had about 15 favorites then immediately wanted to buy the all. Well, that didn’t happen but it was easy to distract her with our plans for the afternoon to meet friends at Pier 25.
You can easily make a whole day of this adventure as there are many fun playgrounds withing walking distance, the incredible Pier 25, the Sea Glass Carousel and also the Museum of Jewish History, a Living Memorial and the World Trade Center Memorial.
