Let's assume you're not a model, an A-list celebrity or Tim Gunn, but you'd still like to get into Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
Technically, the entire run of catwalk shows under the tents at Bryant Park is closed to the public.
But that's not entirely true.
The NewYorkology travel blog has found more than one way to buy your way into the tents.
One way in is with the W Hotels Catwalk package, which gets a pair of VIP passes into one runway show, plus a suite at W Hotel on Union Square or on Lexington.
Passes are still available to shows including Miss Sixty and Tracy Reese. The hotel package is priced at $799.
Another way in is through the American Express entertainment packages, available only to American Express cardholders. Remaining tickets for those packages are $250 each.
Elsewhere, American Express is offering its platinum cardholders a private Diane von Furstenberg Fashion Show, with tickets priced at $150 each.
