Newest Auction Item — Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in NYC

Channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw and come bid on 2 tickets to Fashion Week in New York City.  Yes you read that correctly. Thanks to our friends at Glasscock Boutique, The Saddlebred Rescue Brunch and Silent Auction is proud to offer for your bidding, 2 tickets to events on September 8 & 9, 2012 during this year’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City.  The brunch and silent auction is being held August 23 @ 10:30 a.m. at the Crowne Hotel across the street from the KY Expo Center.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is New York City’s single largest media event, taking place twice a year (February & September) at Lincoln Center, one of the most well known arts and cultural institutions in the world.  The event provides top designers an international platform to showcase their collections to more than 100,000 industry insiders from around the world, including buyers, editors, retailers, celebrities, VIPs, and more.  The tickets are slated to be used on Saturday and Sunday of Fashion Week.  You will be invited to view the collections of Zang Toi, Christian Siriano, Chado Ralph Rucci, Chris Benz and Rafael Cennamo to name a few designers.  This annual event is known as the premier event worldwide where style, beauty, supermodels, and celebrities come together to celebrate the best in fashion.

We can’t promise exactly which celebrities, designers and supermodels you’ll see, but our friend Todd Calvert, from Glasscock Boutique, promises to take you for showroom visits to some of the world’s greatest designers.  The highest bidder and their + one will have the opportunity to visit:

When I talked to Todd Calvert a few minutes ago, he was coy and leading me on, but he said that he might be able to sweeten the prize, he would know more at the brunch.  Truly, I’m not sure what he meant by that, but I intend to find out.

Okay, I know this post is getting long, but I have to tell you that Zang Toi and Todd Calvert will be at the brunch.  Zang Toi is having a Trunk Show in the Hancock Room and all of us are invited to check it out.  Anyone that attends the Saddlebred Rescue Brunch and Silent Auction and subsequently purchases at the trunk show will further help Saddlebred Rescue.  Glasscock Boutique has agreed to donate a generous portion of the purchase price directly to Saddlebred Rescue.  A very selfless act.  Thank you Glasscock.

So how about it, think of that one special friend that you want to experience this bucket list event with.  Bid on and win the tickets to part of Fashion Week.  Enjoy New York in the autumn.  You guys will have a blast.

This could be you.

P.S.  We have made arrangements to bid remotely.

P.S. again.  I’m not sure what celebrities you will run into, but Todd Calvert told me that least year at one of the shows, he sat next to Brad Pitt and behind Susan Sarandon.  Oh, and he also swears that Anna Wintour is a really nice woman, a doll in fact.
