Cathay Pacific "Walking On Air" Fashion Getaway Sweepstakes

14 Sep 2012

(Vancouver, B.C) – Cathay Pacific Airways, recognized around the globe for its amenities and service excellence, has announced the “Walking On Air” fashion getaway sweepstakes celebrating the airline’s rich history of couture.

Known as much for style as service (cabin crew uniform designers have included Hermès, Nina Ricci, and most recently, renowned Hong Kong designer, Eddie Lau), Cathay Pacific has brought together the top names in lifestyle and fashion – including Tablet Hotels, Rent the Runway and Birchbox – to give one lucky jetsetter and a companion the opportunity to win a dream getaway to Cathay Pacific’s home, Hong Kong. Additionally, 10 fashion aficionados have the opportunity to win a set of limited-edition Cathay Pacific dolls, each wearing a Cathay Pacific uniform from a different era.

Visitors to http://www.cathaypacific.ca/offers/WalkingOnAir from now until September 24, 2012 will be treated to a video of Cathay Pacific’s public runway show showcasing Cathay Pacific’s uniforms throughout the years. Visitors may pin their favourite uniform to Pinterest, and also enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win a stylish prize package which includes:

  • Two Cathay Pacific roundtrip tickets from Toronto or Vancouver to Hong Kong
  • Tablet, specializing in unique and unforgettable hotel experiences, is providing five nights at the J Plus Boutique Hotel in Hong Kong
  • A private guided tour of the Cathay Pacific Museum, CXperience, at Cathay City in Hong Kong, where the actual uniforms featured in the video are on display
  • A dream jetsetter wardrobe for two provided by Rent The Runway
  • A one-month subscription to Birchbox

From September 10-24, 2012, Cathay Pacific will host three boards on the “Cathay Pacific Walking On Air” Pinterest page featuring runway show shots, a uniform gallery and miscellaneous vintage photographs. Pinterest enthusiasts are invited to pin their favourite uniform images to their page for a chance to win the limited edition vintage dolls.
