Fashion Sensei Says…


If You’ve Got the Bucks, You’re in Luck!


Have you ever dreamed of spending the day with a fashion icon? 

Just in time for your holiday wish list, Saks Fifth Avenue is offering  a day with Diane von Furstenberg, Trish McEvoy, Tory Burch, or Stuart Weitzman.  For $20,000, you can spend  the day with one of the above famed New York City designers. Included in the price, is a two-night stay at New York’s The Plaza, round-trip business class airfare, a day with the designer and a $10,000 contribution to a selected charity.  (That way there isn’t any guilt associated in spending such an outlandish amount of money.)

Diane von Furstenberg and Tory Burch along with tours of their studios and other goodies, this package offers a $2,000 shopping spree at Saks along with tickets to NY Fashion Week.

If you opt for Stuart Weitzman, you can score a pair of custom designed shoes, including the designer’s sketch along with $2,000 to buy what else?  More shoes.

For the cosmetic queen inside you, the Trish McEvoy package includes a tour, treatment, make up lesson and $500 to shop.

Only one of each gift is available October 22 through December 21, 2008 by calling 866.699.7257. [PR Newswire]
