New York fashion week is coming up sooner than you think and for those who already have their invites consider yourself lucky. But if yours was “lost in the mail” don’t resort to crashing the show like so many others. Keep your dignity and buy a ticket. Ty Yorio who has been working the golden gates to shows for 45 seasons describes the rejection process as an unusual mix of humane compassion, interpersonal intimidation and a bit of public shaming. Ouch.
In an unusual move for fashion designers Tommy Hilfiger is making available a limited amount of tickets to American Express cardholders for NYFW at the Lincoln Center.
Tickets are $95- $150 for the Spring 2012 runway show and will include an evening of cocktails. The show will be held at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center, at 6:30pm on Thursday, February 16th. The prices might seem a bit steep but if you are hell bent on attending a show it is better than being turned away at the door.
