Wine Wednesday: Celebrate Fashion Month at the Empire Hotel NYC

I can’t believe that it’s almost September – where did the summer go?? That also means that the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week shows are right around the corner too.  That’s eight days of some of the latest, greatest and in some cases most daring fashions, will make their appearance to hundreds of editors from around the world.  Honestly there’s nothing like it and for some, the fashions outside (and fashionistas wearing them) are just as interesting as what’s seen inside the tents.  All that withstanding, even the most dedicated writer needs to take a break after hours and hours of seeing shows and writing.

This year it’s really special because Lincoln Center will celebrate its 1st anniversary of Fashion week in it’s new home.  Just across the street at the Empire Hotel, you’ll always find some celebrity, editor and photographer or just a fashion-lover taking a break to catch up with friends they haven’t seen since last season. Beginning September 1, The Empire Hotel adds new tasty recipes to their Fashion Week cocktail menu to help everyone celebrate. Partnering with Moises de la Renta (yes, son of Oscar) the hotels “Fashion Week Ambassadors,” will be wearing a custom designed dress just for this occasion.

Happy and fashionable wine Wednesday. The Empire Hotel will offer these specialty cocktails through the entire month of September so you’ll have 30 days to indulge your inner Fashionista!
