In celebration of Fashion Week, Booking.com (booking.com) will partner up with alice + olivia to bring the very first fashion yacht this September, one that you can actually stay at exclusively through Booking.com.

Since almost half of travellers (47%) are inspired to make style changes and experiment with fashion while abroad, this is the perfect stay.

The yacht will be outfitted in alice + olivia’s signature designs, evoking the ultimate vacation getaway. If you’re not in the Big Apple this fall, but have an appetite for floating accommodation, here are seven other glamorous water stays.
