Marshall Fields in downtown Chicago did one of these last year. I saw some images somewhere...

"Vertical catwalk" suggests they're modeling clothes. Isn't 65' a little high for that? Guess not if the clothes are bad.

I'd like to see them set it up so that a 'dummy model' (not one with a low IQ but a fake person - not just another fashion executive - an actual mannequin or something similar) set it up so that the mannequin looks like a person and in the middle of the show comes plummeting down to earth when the cable 'snaps'. I reckon that'd scare the sh!t out of a whole bunch of ppl.

Wonder what they get paid to do that? Does it qualify for hazardous duty pay? Actually I've done a fair amount of work with models for fashion and the rate for runway is pretty low.

Imagine Ralph Lauren trying to play polo on the side of a sky scraper.

In the late 90's I did a sponsored abseil down a twenty something storey bulding but went (as is the norm) backwards. The Paratroopers who set it up RAN down passing me on the way! It was hellish scary!
