New York Fashion Week. Membership Has It’s Privileges

August 14, 2008 • Fashion Shows


Think New York Fashion Week is glamorous? Well it isn’t. At least not for those of us working. However, if you have the itch to experience Fashion Week like our four friends in ‘Sex and the City‘, you no longer have to work in fashion to attend. American Express has been offering exclusive packages to cardmembers for a few seasons now and this upcoming Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is no different.

That’s right. Membership has its privileges. American Express will provide special access to the events under the tents at Bryant Park in New York City for those willing to charge it. American Express Gold Cardmembers, Platinum(R) Cardmembers and Centurion(R) members can choose from a variety of packages to watch runway shows from the exclusive American Express® Skybox. The proceeds from the sale of event packages will contribute to the $500,000 American Express donation to the Council of Fashion Designers of America Vogue Fashion Fund which helps emerging American designers find continued success in the business of fashion.

On sale now, American Express is giving Cardmembers a selection of packages to experience the world of fashion in a dynamic and meaningful way:

American Express Skybox: American Express unveils a newly enhanced Skybox this season. 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.

‘By Invitation Only’® Experiences:
The American Express  “By Invitation Only” Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week packages, available exclusively for Platinum and Centurion members, offer full-day access to the Skybox on September 6 and 7, coordinated meet-and-greets with fashion industry insiders, behind-the-scenes tours and a visit with hair and make-up stylists onsite to perfect their red-carpet-ready look.

Hey, it’s a pretty cushy way to experience Fashion Week.
