Obsessed with fashion? Intrigued by Fashion Week? Fascinated by the dream careers of style content creators, bloggers and YouTube stars? Want to meet famous members of the GRAZIA magazine extended family?
Then come walk the same street style pavement as Australia’s top editors, buyers and style bloggers outside the home of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Weekend Australia for the official ticketed finale to the week’s glamorous proceedings.
Called the Mercedes-Benz Australia Weekend Edition, it’s a series of fashion shows, fashion and beauty style seminars – including the on-stage GRAZIA style sessions starring top social media stars – and perfect social photo opportunities.
For the third year running, GRAZIA’s Fashion News Director, Rachel Sharp, will host in-depth interviews on stage in the venue’s busy hub to garner tips, advice, insights and even a little gossip from four of Australia’s most influential media stars.
The first, held on Saturday, May 19 at 4.40pm will see partners in life and career crime Pia Muehlenbeck (lawyer, model, Instagram and YouTube star, Slinkii activewear founder and GRAZIA market editor) and Kane Vato (photographer, graphic designer, videographer, YouTube star, Slinkii co-founder and self-confessed Insta-husband) discuss the highs and lows of starting their own fashion brand, while travelling the world to create hit YouTube content for their channel Finding the Finer.

For the second session, held at 7.40pm on the same day, Mimi Elashiry (dancer, model, photographer, Instagram superstar and 35mimimeter creator) will join Cartia Mallan (actor, photographer, YouTube star and positive self-image advocate) to talk about their own careers and offer advice on carving your own creative niche.

You can pick up a free copy of GRAZIA’s latest print edition – The Identity Issue – at the Superga pop-up in the MBFWE hub too. The cult Italian sneaker brand – Alexa Chung’s self-confessed shoe fave – will operate a Superga hotspot where you can shop your new Superga shoes (for those in the know, either the 2750 Cotu Classic or 2790 4cm platform styles).
Every set of shoes comes in a limited edition Superga x MBFWA tote bag. Who knows… you may be standing alongside Mimi, Cartia, Pia, Kane or Rachel as they line up for their customised rainbow Supergas too.
