Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is the much-anticipated event that showcases designers’ latest creations and which are revealed with great fanfare to the world. MBFW recognizes established and emerging designers as they share their talents and cultures. This year I look forward to covering the event and sharing it with you from New York. It is truly a feast for the fashion senses and inspiration for style and fashion consumers alike.
The fashion world shares this event twice a year to release the upcoming Fall Winter collections and again at a separate event 6 months later with the Spring Summer collections. Thus giving everyone the opportunity to reflect and relish talents of the fashion and couture masters of the world.
The designer’s have their say with their runway shows demonstrating their latest collections for the global markets.
In New York thousands at Lincoln Center will attend it. Also available from Lincoln center will be live streaming direct from designers from around the world debut their collections. Private venues will also host additional events throughout the week.
