Here’s One Way to Get Publicity at Holiday Time: Have Women Change Clothes in Your Windows


On 38th Street and Fifth Avenue, juniors' label XOXO has erected holiday windows where you can watch women changing clothes. They don't strip past their underwear, but they do walk around in bras and panties. And guess what! The people this display is attracting, mostly, aren't their target clients, but men who — get this — want to leer at women walking around in panties. Times are hard, sure, but surely women in underwear are not the only solution to a slow shopping season. A CNN reporter investigated the situation.

You can see some holiday windows that are actually about the holidays in our slideshow.
