As Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week takes over New York City from Sept. 6–13, it’s easy to tell where the shows are being held by the packs of impossibly chic fashionistas clustered outside. Whenever I do fashion coverage, I feel a little Ugly Betty. (Look at this photo of me at age 11, and tell me you don’t see the resemblance, right down to my sartorial flair! Just add braces!)
If you feel as if your fall wardrobe needs an update, several designers are giving away amazing prizes in celebration of Fashion Week. Check out the giveaways below.
Rub elbows with fashionable at the Milly by Michelle Smith fashion show at Lincoln Center on Sept. 12 at 3 p.m. But hurry — the Fashion’s Night Out Pin It, Win It! contest ends tomorrow, Sept. 6, at noon ET. To enter, create a “World of Milly” Pinterest board that embodies the style of a Milly girl, then tweet the link to the board @MillybyMichelle with hashtag #WorldofMilly. The board should contain images from Milly, as well as some not from Milly, and to be eligible, entrants must “like” Milly on Facebook and follow the brand on Twitter and Pinterest.
The winner, chosen by Smith, receives two tickets to the Milly runway show, a Manhattan ride by Sedan Magic to and from the event, $500 worth of merchandise from the New York City boutique or millyny.com and a two-night stay at The White Barn Inn in Kennebunk Beach, ME, at a time of her choosing! If the winner is not in the New York City area, she can opt instead to attend the Fall 2013 show.
David Meister is giving away a grosgrain trim jacquard dress to one lucky winner though a Facebook sweepstakes. To enter, simply “like” David Meister on Facebook, and provide some basic information, including name and email address, by Sept. 20 at 11:59 p.m.
To be eligible to win a $250 NicoleMiller.com gift card, entrants create a Pinterest board of 10 or more images of what “Digital Nature,” the theme of Nicole Miller’s Spring 2012 runway show, means to them. Name your board and hashtag all pins #NicoleMillerFashionWeek. Email the link to your board, once it is complete, to firstname.lastname@example.org before Sept. 17, 2012 for a chance to win. Winners will be announced on Sept. 19. To view the spring runway show — which sounds intriguing — visit the website on Sept. 7 at 6 p.m. for a live stream.
We can’t wait to see what our favorite designers have in store for spring 2013! Is there any collection that you’re particularly looking forward to seeing?
