New York Fashion Week kicks off its last season at Lincoln Center this Thursday, and even if you're sans-invite, there are still plenty of sneaky ways to get in on the fun—and the swag. Below, we've rounded up all the freebies that the public can score over the next ten days, including workouts, beauty touch-ups, tickets to shows, and even ... soup? Sure!
Work out like a model.
Crunch Gym is offering a free high-intensity running class (appropriately titled "RUNway") this Thursday at 7pm at the West 19th Street location. Even if you aren't already a member, you'll be able to download a free guest pass at Crunch.com.
Get a touch-up.
The folks at beauty-on-the-go app PRIV will set up shop at one of the six Triumph Hotel locations every day between February 12th through the 19th, offering massages, dry hairstyling, mini manicures, and makeup consultations. Services are first-come, first-serve, so you don't worry about RSVP-ing to yet another NYFW event.
Win your way into a show.
Before you forget, follow @uber_nyc and @spring right now—on Thursday, the two will be Tweeting out ways for users to unlock a "Gift Me" button, where you can request a Spring Fashion Week gift bag, as well as the chance to win tickets to shows (Prabal Gurung, Jill Stuart, Honor, and more), products from Opening Ceremony, Steven Alan, and others, and Spring credit.
Brooklyn-based vegan "micro-soupery" The Splendid Spoon is giving away over 1,000 ounces of soup this Thursday between 11am and 2pm—all you've gotta do is Tweet to @SplendidSpoonNY and let them know if you'd rather sip butternut tumeric or mushroom with steel-cut oats.
