With Australia’s premiere fashion event just around the corner, IMG have added to the buzz surrounding Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia with some exciting announcements.

More designers have been added to the schedule including Dyspnea and Zambesi,  whilst six designers have been added to the Nextgen show, with the likes of Isabelle Quinn and Stanzee claiming a coveted spot.

Keeping this year's event fresh and innovative,  MBFWA will for the first time hold Trade Showrooms ‘The Suites’ to give designers the opportunity to extend their exposure beyond the runway, capitalizing on post-show momentum and engaging with buyers directly.

MBFWA will also play host to three thought leadership seminars, led by Ragtrader, Clean Cut Fashion Association and WGSN, each discussing what's in store for the future of fashion with special guest speakers from the industry.

More than 56 designers are confirmed to take part in Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia Official Resort 18 at Carriageworks on 14th- 19th May 2017. The full Schedule can be viewed at
