Since the creation of all that is fashion week, I thought it was fact and common knowledge that you cannot buy your way into a fashion show (well at least not in public) and especially not on the internet. I found this today. Since when does the W Hotel have a fashion week package????? apparently from the site in the link above, "the packages have hit the internet once again". AGAIN? when did this happen before.
Ok, transcending my initial shock, this is an amazing deal (well actually only for the die hard fashion lover whose life would not be complete without a visit to the tent). It's called the Catwalk Package, and for a measly $899 you stay in the fantastic suite with a 3 pm late check out, sip 2 stylish cocktails, receive 2 seats at MBFW with vip tours, a Bliss treatment mask; and if that's not enough, 10% of your vip catwalk proceeds benefit Dress for Success ( see more at W Hotel). Shows available this season through the "Catwalk Experience" include: Perry Ellis, Lacoste, Rock & Republic, Tracey Reese, Harve Leger by Max Azria, Tibi, Miss Sixty, Diesel Black Gold, Nanette Lepore, and Custo Barcelona. Every single last show has been sold out, but maybe you could book now for Fall/ Winter 09 in February. This could be the ultimate splurge.
