Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA) is around the corner, and needless to say, we’re getting excited. As fun as it is to watch all the fashion weeks occurring around the globe, we can’t help but note that Australian style is a little different. Perhaps because of the opposing seasons, or just the distance, our style is unique—and we’re ready to see what that looks like in 2018 and beyond.
CAMILLA AND MARC has been announced as the 'Mercedes-Benz Presents' designer, meaning the 15-year old label will open Fashion Week Australia.
“We are thrilled to open Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia in 2018.” Camilla Freeman-Topper shares, “It was our platform to launch the brand in 2003 and we have enjoyed many highlights together.” Speaking from personal experience, Marc Freeman added that Fashion Week Australia is “a fantastic platform for young, up-and-coming and established designers to present their collections and amplify to a local and global audience.”
If the opening show is any indication of what we can expect of Fashion Week Australia, this seems like a good sign. CAMILLA AND MARC is undeniably a favourite when it comes to Australian labels, so hearing that they will kick off the fashion week seems fitting.
Though May might sound like it’s an eternity away, Fashion Week Australia will be here before we know it. Given this news, we’re anticipating it will be a good year for fashion in Australia. All we can do for now is wait and see what happens! For a taste of what we can expect to see, keep scrolling for some of our favourite pieces you can buy now.
