Time to pull out the Smythson diary, the schedule for the Australian Mercedes Benz Fashion Week has been released.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the event, which will be held from Sunday April 12 to Thursday April 16.
The highly prized opening slot has gone to Ellery, the label owned by Kym Ellery and who has shown collections at Paris Week for the past few seasons to much acclaim. The return of the flare this season can in part placed with Ellery’s love of them.
Carriageworks in the Sydney suburb of Eveleigh will once again host most of the shows (some designers choose to show off-site) and so far the schedule includes the likes of Romance Was Born, Aje, Maticevski, Alice McCall, We Are Handsome, Kate Sylvester and Ginger and Smart.

The closing show hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s certain to be a special one.
