It is illegal to sell Mercedes Benz Fashion Week tickets and that TheGlamazonDiaries.com is in no way suggesting or advocating the illegal sale of tickets.
You've got to be kidding me! A New Jersey concierge service is selling tickets for New York Fashion Week Spring 2011 runway shows and presentations. Chapman Concierge sent an e-mail to their list serve informing them of a "unique opportunity to experience some of the best designers in the world."
If AO Productions denies your invitation to the Carolina Herrera show, you can snatch a seat within the first four rows for $1100. Want to see BCBG up close and personal? It's going to cost you $950. You could probably buy three banded skirts and a dress for that price. Prabal Gurung will be $575, Charlotte Ronson – $850 and DKNY – $950. I wonder what Donna Karan would say if she found out one poor sucker will be viewing her collection for $1200 instead of spending it on a beautifully made frock from her collection.
Where does Colette Chapman get her prices from? With admission to shows getting a lot more stringent this year thanks to a computerized check in system at Lincoln Center, sneaking in with an index card and sharpie is obsolete. I sure hope to the fashion gods that no one in their right minds would pay this much for a show. Under no circumstances should anyone ever pay for fashion week tickets. The event is for fashion editors, writers and industry insiders. Being invited to the show is a real privilege and it's sad that people will exploit such a great event by selling tickets for this event.
