Fashion’s new home, Carriageworks opens its doors tomorrow with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week held from 8 to 12 April. As IMG Fashion announced, the atmospheric former Eveleigh rail yards currently operating as a vibrant hub of arts and culture is an ideal venue offering plenty of space to deliver global production standards.
Three generous locations, The Box, The Runway and The Theatre will provide an excellent opportunity for designers not only to launch their new season’s collections but also to do business and network with clients and other industry professionals.
Joining the major sponsor Mercedes-Benz, the NSW Government takes an active part in promoting the event with the hope that by increasing local and international buyer attendance, the Fashion Week will make a positive economic impact on both the Australian fashion industry and Sydney as an attractive destination.
The five-day long glamorous event will be opened by Camilla and Marc, followed by Aurelio Costarella, Bec and Bridge, Christopher Esber, White Sands, By Johnny and Australia’s most iconic fashion designer Alex Perry.
