Continuing its efforts to provide Chicago Cardmembers with access to unique and memorable experiences, American Express will partner with Tory Burch and present an exclusive runway show on 11/16 at The Field Museum featuring the designer’s Spring 2012 Collection. Hosted by Tory herself, the evening will provide a unique experience that offers a deeper look into the designer’s inspiration and design.
Guests will begin the evening with a one-hour cocktail reception featuring a presentation of the Tory Burch Resort 2011 Collection. Following the reception, Cardmembers will then take their seats to view an exciting, one-of-a-kind runway experience of the Tory Burch Spring 2012 Collection – the first formal show presented by the designer following New York Fashion Week.
Following the show, Ms. Burch will then be joined on the runway by InStyle Fashion Director Hal Rubenstein, as the two discuss the inspiration behind the designer’s latest and her overall approach to the world of fashion. Cardmembers will also receive an exclusive gift bag from Tory Burch to remember the evening.
Proceeds from the sales of packages will go towards the Tory Burch Foundation, which Ms. Burch launched in 2009 to provide economic opportunities to women and their families in the US. In partnership with ACCION USA, the foundation empowers women to start, sustain and grow their own businesses through microfinance and mentoring.
