OMGorgeous, IMG has officially announced the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2016 schedule… Keep reading for all of the need-to-know runway shows and events on next month’s fashion week calendar.
Naturally we can’t wait for this year’s MBFWA as I am once again contributing to Italian Vogue’s online website, Vogue.it.com (thank you, thank you!) If you missed my MBFWA coverage in 2014 on Vogue.it, head on over here: http://www.vogue.it/en/shows/oddities/2014/04/mercedes-benz-fashion-week-australia-2014
So, let’s get down to it…
First up, and opening the week on Sunday 15 May, we will see the magic of Maticevski’s latest resort wear collection at a ‘to-be-confirmed’ off-site location. And if his collection this year is going to be anything like last year’s, then we’re in for a delightful treat (see my write-up from last year’s showcase here: https://www.thefashioncatalyst.com/2015/04/mercedes-benz-fashion-week-australia-mbfwa-2015-maticevski/).
