Want to get tickets to New York Fashion Week?
By Aimee Heckel
New York is in the style spotlight this week. If you’re planning a crash trip to the Big A, or you happen to be in New York and you want to check the styles from the front row, we’ve got great news for you:
That’s not the great news.
NY Fashion Week is a closed party. Just press and buyers. Not even all press. We’ve got an official press badge and license plate, yet here we sit, in sweat pants in Northern Colorado. (They’re our fancy sweat pants, though.)
The great news is plan B, in which B stands for “bomb” not “bad.” Couture Fashion Week is this week, too, starting today through Sunday at the New Yorker Hotel. Score tickets starting at just $40 for general seating tonight, up to $220 for front row on Saturday. Also look for multi-day passes.
Couture Fashion Week features various couture (duh) and luxury lines, as cutting edge, write-a-blog-about-it, groundbreaking and often brain-blowing as The Fashion Week, except this for-profit style celebration is open to the public. In addition to the runway, you will also enjoy entertainment, art, fancy dinners and parties.
Surprise! More great news. It looks like there are rooms available at the New Yorker Hotel for Thursday through Sunday, if you want to stay right in the heat of the action. Before you get too giddy, that will cost you a pretty fancy penny, starting at $687 for a queen (er, that includes breakfast).
