Dirndl Temptation: Win a Trip to Austria
(Dedicated Email)

This summer, the Austrian Tourist Office is bringing a beloved Austrian tradition to New York: The Dirndl.

Fun, feminine and flirty, this traditional Austrian dress convinced British designer Vivienne Westwood that "there would be no ugliness in the world if every woman wore a dirndl."

We like the way she thinks, so we asked a group of "Dirndl Ambassadors" to join us for various events and introduce New Yorkers to the modernized versions of Maria von Trapp's favorite clothing item. If you happen to spot a group of people dressed in colorful Dirndl, be sure to take a picture and post it on our facebook page – we'll give away small prizes to the first five posts we receive!

Join us this Saturday, July 28 during the Muppet Movie Sing-A-Long in Prospect Park or next week August 4 at the P.S. 1 warm-up in L.I.C.

Follow us on a discovery tour of all things Dirndl-related, and if, along the way, you like us on Facebook, you'll get the chance to win a trip for two to Salzburg, the heart of Austria's Dirndl-country (this of course includes getting your own Dirndl and Lederhosen).
