The affordable Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival experience

The affordable Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival experience

| On 22, Aug 2013

This Sunday 25th August will see the beginning of the annual Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane.

This year will be the seventh year the event has been held in Brisbane, and will see a series of spring-summer collections debuted over six days.

As Queensland’s premier fashion event, it is the place to be to view all upcoming designers as well as top Australian and international labels.

As the ‘place to be’ for next week, I have compiled a list of all the shows that have released $25 standing mezzanine seats and also the free events, for those of you who want to indulge without hurting your wallet.
