Fashion Week starts tomorrow – actually today since it’s now 12:30am – and I’m excited about what we’ll see for Spring/Summer 2009. I’m also thrilled that I’ll be a featured “fashion insider” at the AMEX Skybox located inside the Tent and the Promenade, the two larger venues allocated for the best shows during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. So what is this AMEX Skybox? Here’s the official PR shpeal:
American Express Skybox: American Express unveils a newly enhanced Skybox this season that provides premium access for American Express Gold Cardmembers, Platinum(R) Cardmembers and Centurion(R) members to experience the runway shows in a truly unique way. Overlooking both the Tent and Promenade but undetectable from the runway, the Skybox features a VIP lounge-style viewing room where Cardmembers can mix and mingle over great refreshments and premium beverages, and converse with influencers from the world of fashion. This season’s Skybox will be designed by American Express Cardmember Frank Carfaro, acclaimed founder and creative director of contemporary home furnishings company, DESIRON. Guests expected to attend include Phillip Lim, Philip Crangi, Joe Zee, Tory Burch, Linda Fargo, Julie Gilhart, Pamela Pekerman, Diane Von Furstenberg and Richard Chai, making the Skybox an experience not to be missed.
Yup, that’s yours truly right next to DVF. I’m delighted to be chosen along with great designers, trend spotters, and editors. We’ll be on hand to chat-up trends and scoop with Cardmembers as they get the VIP treatments. If you happen to be one of the lucky gals or guys, I look forward to meeting you. For everyone else, I finally found my FLIP Video so I’ll document the whole experience!!
Have a bag-a-licious day!
