New Zealand Fashion Week's elite partner, Mercedes-Benz, announced that their designer partner for 2017 will be Zambesi. The designer is picked based on creativity, originality and ingenuity. Among the prizes are sponsored runway space, which will be the first evening show at New Zealand Fashion Week. Additionally, Zambesi gets to make use of a Mercedes-Benz which will no doubt come in handy during the hustle and bustle of putting together their show.
The 'Mercedes-Benz presents Zambesi' show will feature two bespoke outfits created in honour of the partnership. Mercedes-Benz will also be providing cars for New Zealand Fashion Week’s VIP guests, as they have in previous years.
