Is the future of fashion now? “A. Human” is the latest in a string of immersive pop-up installations to open in Manhattan with a heavy dose of surrealism and backdrops begging for selfies.
This one features mannequins adorned in surgically implanted high heels, lace-like finger webbing and other body modifications -- an immersive show by PR-meister (and Kim Kardashian pal) Simon Huck, who says he’s hoping to encourage introspection about “a potential future of fashion.” And selfies.
