As New York Fashion Week for the Fall 2012 collections quickly approaches, fashion fans around the world gear up for a week of stunning clothes, fabulous parties and beautiful people. You may have just heard a harmonious sigh from those Fashion Week hopefuls who could only dream of doing cocktails with Zac Posen, lunching with Donna Karen and scoring seats to J. Mendel's Lincoln Center show.

This year, even those who do not have the good fortune of holding a front-row ticket can have a chance at scoring some of the most coveted Fashion Week 2012 plans in New York.

The Carlyle, a Rosewood Hotel, presents Inside Haute, an exclusive three-day fashion extravaganza planned by fashion insider Kathleen Beckett who has covered fashion for Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Glamour and Elle. Using her connection, Beckett has created an agenda that only A-list stars get to experience - lunches, cocktails, dinners and fashion shows with some of New York City's fashion elite.

Twenty lucky guests can score the trip of a lifetime. The Inside Haute package for Fashion Week 2012, available from Feb. 15-18, 2012, includes:  

  • Cocktails with Zac Posen at his design studio 
  • Lunch with Donna Karan at the Stephan Weiss Studio at Urban Zen
  • Tea with Nadja Swarovski at the Swarovski private offices
  • Champagne with Sophie Theallet at her atelier
  • Invitation to Joanna Mastroianni show at Lincoln Center with backstage access to meet the designer
  • Invitation to J. Mendel show at Lincoln Center with backstage access to meet designer Gilles Mendel
  • Lunch in the Member's Dining Room and a private behind-the-scenes tour of the fashion archives at The Metropolitan Museum  
  • Welcome cocktails & dinner with Alan Flusser and Kokin at The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel
  • Individual chauffeured car service

The trip does come at a hefty cost--$6,000 per person for the three-day experience. However, it also includes access to all events, breakfast daily, all meals and individual chauffeured car service. Those who want to arrive early for Fashion Week can even work out arrangements to see the Ralph Rucci show on Sunday, Feb. 12.

The Carlyle itself is a hub of cultural buzz. Since 1930, the Madison Avenue hotel has been a landmark in the East Side with international acclaim and superior ranking.
