Though SS13 fashion week just wrapped, we’ve already got our sights set on FW13. Last week, I was chatting with a girlfriend about potentially attending FW13 fashion week in Paris. We priced it out, and though the final roundabout number was a bit jarring, I remained undeterred. I certainly anticipate attending the Chanel show at the Grand Palais in the near future. Fast-forward to today, I received affirmation of my Parisian pursuits via an amazing FW13 Paris fashion week giveaway from The Cools! One lucky fashion week obsessee and their guest will win backstage access and FRONT ROW seats to two Paris FW13 shows and a meet and greet with each designer! Wait, it gets even better. The trip also includes interviews with two emerging designers, a fancy dinner at Café Marly, museum tours and VIP service at two Paris hot spots. And because the wardrobe must be inexplicably chic for such a trip, The Cools caps of this stellar prize with a $1000 shopping credit. The contest kicked off last week and you have four-weeks to enter via The Cools’ Facebook page.
Of course, I’ve already entered the contest, but once done, I browsed the site and it’s really cool (hence the name). To sum it up, The Cools is an edgy social marketplace – it’s like a Pinterest / ShopStyle mash-up. There’s an online community tailored to personal style, you can blog your “cool” picks to your “Feed”, and browse, discover and shop from independent brands, boutiques and sellers.
You know that here at FFB, there’s nothing we love more than discovering and featuring new brands. I plan on spending much time on The Cools’ site, with fingers crossed that I’ll be selected as the winner of this unreal Parisian fashion week package.
