American Express Canada steps out in style as the sponsor of the new Yorkdale Style Concierge

TORONTO, April 13, 2017 /CNW/ - Today, American Express Canada announces its sponsorship of a new style lounge located in Yorkdale Shopping Centre, one of Toronto's trendiest malls. The Yorkdale Style Concierge Presented by American Express offers shoppers an opportunity to book appointments with some of the city's top stylists. As part of this sponsorship, American Express is also excited to offer its Cardmembers special benefits on style services, as well as access to an exclusive shopping event this spring.

"Our Cardmembers are passionate about unique dining, music and fashion experiences, so partnering with Yorkdale Shopping Centre was an easy decision for us," says Megan McKee, Vice President, Consumer Charge and New Business Development for American Express Canada. "Not only will our Cardmembers love the personalized style services at the Yorkdale Style Concierge Presented by American Express, but they'll be able to enjoy them at an exclusive rate."

With the Yorkdale Style Concierge Presented by American Express, finding the perfect outfit has never been easier. Whether it's a complete wardrobe makeover, last-minute fashion crisis, or specific outfit request, shoppers can make an appointment at the Concierge for a one-on-one styling consultation session. All American Express Cardmembers can enjoy complimentary "fashion emergency" assistance services (outfit for last minute event, lost luggage or urgent clothing repair), and Platinum Cardmembers can enjoy a variety of benefits when booking personal stylist appointments. Each styling session features a stylist from La Closette, Toronto's premiere fashion consultancy.

Premium Cardmembers can also look forward to Yorkdale Privé by American Express, an upcoming shopping event taking place in spring 2017. This event entails an evening of mingling and pre-Mother's Day shopping in the prestigious new Luxury Wing at Yorkdale Shopping Centre, where participating retailers will close their doors to the public for one night only. FASHION Magazine's Fashion Editor & Page One Management's Fashion Stylist, Zeina Esmail, will be in attendance at this Cardmember-exclusive event.
