Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival returns to Brisbane

A major celebration of Queensland style is back for 2017, with the announcement of the return of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane!

Since the event was last held in 2015, all aspects of the Fashion Festival have been reviewed to ensure the program showcases the very best of Queensland and Australian fashion, and the brightest up-and-coming design talent.

Running from Sunday, August 27 to Thursday, August 31 and hosted at Old Government House, the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival will feature fashion runway shows and other audience favourites.

Festival Director Lindsay Bennett said, “We are absolutely delighted to announce the return of this premier Spring/Summer fashion showcase to Queensland. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival will be unique to previous years, as we present a refined program that will nonetheless shine a national spotlight on Queensland’s talented fashion industry.

“We have been working on new ideas that will allow us to once again stage the Fashion Festival with the level of prestige and the quality of production that has come to be expected in the past decade.

“We are also thrilled to have a number of key partners on board to bring our vision to life, most notably our Principal Partner since the beginning, Mercedes-Benz,” Mr Bennett added.

Horst von Sanden, CEO and Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars Australia/ Pacific said he was pleased to continue the brand’s partnership with the Brisbane Fashion Festival.

“Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane is a fantastic platform for the Queensland fashion industry and we are proud to renew our association with this highly anticipated and reputable event. We look forward to once again partnering with the Fashion Festival and helping to drive fashion retail for Queensland,” Mr von Sanden said.

Further details, including the full program, designers and ticketing will be released in the coming months. Visit
