DKNY Partners with American Express for a Cardmember Only NYFW Fashion Show

The DKNY show is always one of the highlights of my New York Fashion
Week experience. I’ve been lucky enough to watch the DKNY runway shows in person. The designs are amazing, and it’s always a tribute to New York City. Although Fashion Week is more open now, thanks to the Internet and live stream shows, most people don’t have the opportunity to attend a live fashion week show unless they are part of the fashion industry or a member of the press
. Now, American Express and DKNY are changing that by offering a show that will be open to American Express cardmembers via ticket purchase.
Donna Karan will be debuting the DKNY 2012 Resort Collection exclusively for American Express Cardmembers. Before the models hit the runway, Ms. Karan will offer the audience further insight into her inspiration and design approach for the collection. The event will take place Thursday, September 15 at Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center, kicking off with pre-show cocktails at 7:30 p.m. and the show beginning promptly at 8:30 p.m. Additionally, American Express will contribute a portion of the proceeds to the Urban Zen Foundation, which was founded by Ms. Karan and is committed to raising awareness and inspiring change in the areas of well-being, preserving cultures and empowering children. This is the type of thing I love, great fashions combined with a great cause.
“I am so pleased to partner with American Express this season to create a special runway event for Cardmembers showcasing the DKNY 2012 Resort Collection,” said Donna Karan. “It’s very rewarding to share my vision and designs directly with the customers through such a one-of-a-kind evening during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.”
For details, visit americanexpress.com/entertainment for more information and to purchase limited packages. I have to check to see if I can use some of my Amex Membership Reward points for a ticket. Even though I typically attend the DKNY runway shows, I’d still like to see this special event!
