While the editors and bloggers who attend NYFW, LFW, PFW and beyond are growing more and more jaded every season, one company is betting that the fashion outsiders will pay exorbitant sums for seats at top shows.
Watermill Center Summer Auction is opening a gallery in the Hamptons and they're hosting a fashion week auction to underwrite the construction. The handful of tickets up for bidding include two front-row seats to Fendi (including backstage access), Prada, and Armani in Milan starting at $25,000. The bidding for two front-row tickets to Miu Miu in Paris will start at $10,000.
Want to lock in those golden tickets right now? The "buy it now" option for the Milan package is currently set at $95,000, while the Miu Miu show alone starts at $25,000. Or you could just stay at home and buy multiple outfits from the collection.
