Tomorrow from 5pm to 6pm, Leandra Medine of Man Repeller will be dressing mannequins in Tibi in the windows of Bloomingdale's. It's like Daphne Guinness at Barneys, only with a sense of humor!

Medine has gained widespread acclaim by celebrating fashion that frightens and confuses your average straight guy: Drop-crotch pants, flatform shoes, anything that turns curves into lumps. Her show tomorrow will rely heavily on crowd participation, so if you've ever wanted to help guide a Bloomie's mannequin into a truly sexless ensemble (and really, who among us hasn't?), then this would be your opportunity. Afterwards, meet Medine and Tibi designer Amy Smilovic in the Contemporary section on the second floor for drinks till 8pm.
