For many of us, Fashion Week is mostly about scouring runway slideshows from our office chairs and envying the meticulously curated style of front row denizens. But for our Ultimate Fashion Week Experience winner, Cathy, that certainly wasn't the case.
To make sure Cathy looked ready to conquer Lincoln Center, Givenchy treated her and her sister to a makeover with a Givenchy makeup artist, a $1000 e-gift certificate, and a bevy of Veuve Clicquot Champagne. And with a blow out from DreamDry they were all glammed up and ready to hit fashion shows from Kenneth Cole, Tibi, and Christian Siriano.
The next day she headed over to Barneys New York to use her $2500 shopping spree to get some amazing shoes and handbags. That's on top of her swag and class from Flywheel. And thanks to King&Grove Williamsburg, she got an excellent weekend's worth of sleep while in the city.
Big thanks to Givenchy Beauty, Barneys New York, King&Grove Williamsburg, DreamDry, Flywheel, and Veuve Clicquot for making sure our winner truly had the ultimate fashion week experience.
