ATLANTA — MARTA police is investigating local designers after they took over a MARTA station for a fashion show and converted into catwalk without getting caught.
The pop-up fashion show was titled “Boys Don’t Cry,” which is why someone spray painted a “no smoking” sign to read “no crying.”
A local filmmaker made the three minute video for the designers (b).Rick and Dieter last month. It showed models coming out of the elevator and turning the Buckhead MARTA station into a packed catwalk.
“It doesn’t look like it was authorized,” a MARTA rider told Channel 2’s Craig Lucie after viewing the video.
MARTA didn’t authorize it. They found out about it Thursday morning.
When Lucie asked MARTA where security was and how did they pull it off, MARTA sent this statement:
The local designers who put it together also declined an on-camera interview with Lucie, but sent him this statement.
A MARTA spokesperson told Lucie that he was not aware of the designers trying to contact them and is asking them to reach out to him again so they can talk about it.
Since fashion has always pushed the envelope, Lucie had to ask someone in the business their thoughts.
