A design store is giving away designer chairs for free but only if you dress as Cher.
Pop icon and LGBTI queen, Cher, is coming to Australia to headline the official Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras after party.
The world famous Mardi Gras parade and party are happening this weekend from 3 March.
Matt Blatt, wants to join in the festivities and decided to give away one of its own icons. The national store will give away 100 Replica Philippe Starck Masters Chair.
The first 50 people to turn up dressed as Cher, could win the highly sought after chairs.
‘We support the LGBTIQ community and are personally big Cher fans so we were very excited to hear she was headlining Sydney’s Mardi Gras this year,’ Matt Blatt’s owner, Adam Drexler told Gay Star News.
‘We’re sponsoring a float at Mardi Gras this year and are excited to be involved. Having a quirky promotion liked this seemed like a fun way to get into the spirit of the weekend in our showrooms.
‘It’s up to our fabulous showroom teams to decide whether a costume constitutes a Cher costume. If the person has clearly put in some effort and shows enthusiasm, that’s good enough for us.’
Get Cher a chaise
Not content with making Cher fans happy, Matt Blatt wants to give the diva herself an extravagant gift.
If they can get Cher herself to into one of their showrooms, they’ll give her the glam Portia Sofa with Chaise. They’ll even ship it to a destination of her choice.
