New York's Gansevoort Market, universally know as the Meat Packing District, was the place for both two and four legged fashionistas on Saturday, April 7, 2007 when Veuve Cliquot Rose Champagne sponsored a Trunk Show. New York Cool photographer Krisztina Fazekas attended and took these photos with the guidance of expert tour guide, Meat Packing District Initiative Executive Director Annie Washburn.

Manhattan's Meat Packing District is now the destination for the ultra hip. It still retains its meat market ambiance with actual meat slaughter houses mixed in with the other type of meat market, the kind that takes place at hot spots such as PM, Cielo and the roof-top bar at the Gansevoort Hotel. And no daytime trip to the Meat Packing District would be complete without a trip to Jeffrey to see items like $700 pony skin ballet flats or a dash into Stella McCartney to check out just which fashions H & M will reinterpret next.

Saturday's event was a chance to visit the ultra trendy boutiques of the District. It was also a chance to attend Kwigy-bo K9 Couture's doggie fashion show at Michael Angelo’s Wonderland Beauty Parlour at 418 W 13th Street. And no, the Wonderland Beauty Parlour is not a dog grooming palace; it is a trendy and friendly place for two-legged hipsters to get the latest haircut and to also buy fun gifts.

Any shopping trip to the Meat Packing District should include a stop at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week favorite Carlos Miele's shop at 408 14th Street.
