If you have an American Express Gold or Platinum card or are a Centurion member, count yourself lucky because during the upcoming New York Fashion Week, you can choose from a variety of cool ways to enjoy the runway shows from the exclusive privacy of the American Express Skybox. Designed by DESIRON's Frank Carfaro, founder and creative director of the contemporary home furnishings company, the Skybox has a VIP lounge-style viewing room which discreetly overlooks the main two show venues, the Main Tent and the Promenade, where members can mix, mingle, quaff fabulous bevvies, chat with fashion world influencers, and just soak up the whole fashiony ambiance.
"This season, American Express Card members will have access to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week like never before with memorable experiences under the tents that offer an up-close, multifaceted look into the world of fashion and key fashion influencers," explains Jessica Igoe, Director of Marketing and Sponsorships for American Express. "New to the Skybox this season, we will have an exciting roster of fashion insiders who will join Card members during the shows and provide personal insights into the runway action that won't be available anywhere else."
As a part of American Express’ continued support of designers and the fashion industry, 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. "It is exciting to see how American Express continues to raise the bar each season and offer innovative, one-of-a-kind experiences for their Card members at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week,” adds Fern Mallis, Senior Vice President of IMG Fashion. "This season's activities will take the electricity in the tents to new heights, and we are thrilled to once again welcome American Express Card members to Bryant Park."
Special guests and other surprises are in store for Skybox guests, so ensure your piece of the action at AmericanExpress.com/entertainment. For Platinum and Centurion members, there is the option of By Invitation Only experiences, featuring full-day Skybox access on September 6th & 7th, coordinated meet-and-greets with fashion industry insiders, behind-the-scenes tours and a visit with hair and make-up stylists on-site to perfect their red-carpet-ready look.
