Mercedes-Benz & IMG Fashion renew three year deal
May '10
As plans solidify for runway shows at Lincoln Center for the Spring 2011 Collections this September, Mercedes-Benz USA announces the renewal of its title sponsorship for FashionWeek over the next 3 years, which includes the twice annually organized Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek in New York plus Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek SWIM in Miami, both events produced by IMG Fashion.

"The industry support and innovation being utilized to transform Lincoln Center into the new home of Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek is a testament to New York City's premier status among the greatest fashion capitals of the world," said Stephen Cannon, vice president of marketing for Mercedes-Benz USA. "Our commitment to the event's success will continue as we officially renew our three year agreement with IMG to remain title sponsor."

For nearly a decade, Mercedes-Benz has supported premier fashion events that create a connection between fascinating car and fashion designs that speak to the desire for individual style. Mercedes-Benz involvement in FashionWeek dates back to 2001 and its three year commitment extends its title sponsorship through 2013.

"Mercedes-Benz commitment to the fashion industry is truly humbling," said Peter Levy, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of IMG Fashion Worldwide. "As a long term partner of IMG Fashion globally, Mercedes-Benz has shown a tremendous amount of vision in its support of Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek as we undertake this exciting move to Lincoln Center."

Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek New York draws international attention and over 100,000 visitors to New York City, including approximately 3,000 members of the press and fashion industry from around the world. IMG Fashion, The City of New York and Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) have long sought to identify a new home for Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek in New York. With the support of Lincoln Center, the event will commence September 2010 at its new home in Damrosch Park on the Lincoln Center Campus. In addition to the new address, the event will unveil modernized production capabilities, digital services, better accessibility for attendees through both public and private transportation, and increased resources on-site and in the surrounding areas.

"As a leader and innovator in the auto industry it makes sense for Mercedes-Benz to be involved with the best events that allow us to create unique Mercedes-Benz experiences for our customers," said Lisa Holladay, Manager Brand Experience Marketing for Mercedes-Benz USA. "The renewal of the Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek title sponsorship combined with the facilities at Lincoln Center provides a new platform to support the advanced needs of the fashion industry, while also providing additional opportunities to showcase the Mercedes-Benz brand."
