Woah! Guess Who Just Pulled Out of Fashion Week

Kat Collings

New York Fashion Week as we know it may never be the same. Back in December, it was announced that the semi-annual production would be forced to leave its home at Lincoln Center over lease disputes, and now WWD reports that Mercedes-Benz, the official sponsor for the past five years, has dropped out. The news couldn’t come at a worse time, as Fashion Week officials are still busy scrambling to secure a new location before the spring shows in February.

To explain Mercedes-Benz's dramatic exit, a spokeswoman for the company stated, “Our relationship with fashion is not ending…We routinely review those events for return on investment and general engagement.” 

What do you think of Mercedes-Benz dropping out as a sponsor? We’ll keep you up on the latest Fashion Week changes—in the mean time, let us know in the comments below!
