SYDNEY — A shift to a resort focus for the annual Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia has garnered industry approval.
Pushed back a month and rebranded from its 20-year-old spring focus to target the international resort buying schedule, MBFWA 2016, which closed on Friday, attracted 30,000 visitors, up 18 percent on 2015, according to organizer IMG’s preliminary estimates. They included 24 international retail delegates — up 57.14 percent on 2015, claims IMG, growth the company attributes to the new strategy.
