(NEW YORK) Fashion fans (of the non buyer/editor type) can still get their Bryant Park fix this season—if they’re willing to pull out their plastic. American Express will once again be hosting the Skybox in the tent, and through its Premium Access program will be offering the chance to lounge in the Jonathan Adler-designed space, view exclusive fashion shows and meet designers and industry insiders. Packages are available at www.americanexpress.com/entertainment for the experience.
But Bryant Park won’t be the only place that AmEx will be putting their chic touch on this season. Fashion’s Night Out shoppers will get a bonus for swiping their cards with the retailers open for the event around the city. American Express Cardmembers who spend at least $300 at two or more retailers will receive at $50 credit on their next statement—which we can only assume will go toward that next chic purchase. "We are thrilled to be bringing new Fashion Week events and experiences for Cardmembers, where they will get unique perspectives on fashion through the designers and fashion influencers that they love," said American Express spokesperson Leslie Berland.
