This week is Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia - the nation's largest fashion industry event.
Based at Carriageworks, the week-long event attracts over 30,000 visitors including designers, international buyers, photographers, and media who stay, dine and shop in our city.
An estimated $2.3 million is spent on operational, marketing, support and production each year that benefits local businesses and delivers significant tourism benefits to Sydney each year.
The City is proud to be a sponsor of Fashion Week, and this year I am particularly pleased to see Paddington Reservoir Gardens being used as a stunning backdrop for local designers We Are Handsome.
For the first time this year's Fashion Week also includes exclusive event for the public called Weekend Edition, which will give ticket holders the opportunity to see the very latest collections on the runway mere days after the industry has viewed it.
