Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia has been cancelled.
"Due to the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee’s mandate against holding non-essential, organised public gatherings of more than 500 people, in light of global health concerns regarding COVID-19, we regret to share that Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2020 will not take place," said MBFWA in a statement.
"This decision was made after careful consideration, as the health and safety of everyone involved remains our top priority. Please be assured we are working to refund registration fees as soon as possible and we thank you for your support of the Australian fashion community."
The showcase of Australian Resort 2021 collections had been due to run from May 11 to 15 at Sydney’s Carriageworks venue.
