Due To Overwhelming Demand, Tickets on Sale Now for Exclusive Live Screening and Panel Discussion Featuring Tory Burch, Alexander Wang, Jenna Lyons and Vogue’s Hamish Bowle
NEW YORK (August 30, 2010) – In response to overwhelming ticket demand for the initial Cardmember early on sale, American Express is proud to present an exclusive Cardmember-Only Viewing Event and Designer Discussion for Fashion’s Night Out: The Show, the first-ever Fashion’s Night Out Runway Show and the largest public fashion show in New York City history. Cardmembers can purchase tickets to this one-of-a-kind live-stream experience at www.lincolncenter.org.
The exclusive event will take place at Alice Tully Hall on September 7 starting at 6 PM and provide style savvy Cardmembers with another way to experience this memorable evening and be part of the excitement at Lincoln Center. Prior to the start of the live viewing event, Vogue’s European Editor at Large Hamish Bowles will moderate a special panel discussion featuring top fashion designers Tory Burch and Alexander Wang, and Jenna Lyons. The trio of industry-leading voices will offer their personal insights into the industry, discuss upcoming trends and provide additional information around the evening’s unique runway experience.
“We were thrilled that The Show sold out so quickly, but also wanted to do something for the many people who were unable to get tickets,” said Anna Wintour, Vogue’s editor in chief. “I think American Express has come up with a great concept for fashion lovers to experience the show on the seventh.”
Featuring over 150 looks, the exclusive viewing event will offer Cardmembers a spectacular vantage point to view the entire runway production on an entirely new level.
“The demand for early access tickets to Fashion’s Night Out: The Show was a very real demonstration of the passion our Cardmembers’ have for truly unique and unforgettable fashion experiences,” said Jessica Igoe, Director of Global Sponsorship Marketing, American Express. “We’re thrilled to have added an exclusive live-stream viewing experience for our Cardmembers, while giving them an interactive panel discussion with some of the industry’s most coveted names.”
