Aloha fashion fanatics! It’s a mere one week until the gates of fashion heavens open to reveal the 2019 Mercedes Benz Fashion Weekend. An event indulged in by those in the know and those who want to know. Where you can brush shoulders with the influencer elite and be privy to the genius that is the best designers in the country.

To mark the occasion, on Friday May 17, Swarovski are hosting the exclusive opening night party. This year’s event, themed ‘Light Magic’, is your opportunity to frock-up and party the night away among some of Australia’s most interesting fashion personalities. In addition to viewing Swarovski’s brand new FW19 collection, the event also includes a DJ performance by Flight Facilities, decadent canapés, tipples by Tempus Two, Espresso Martinis by Vittoria and, to notch up the fun factor, tarot card readings, Aura portraits and a very special Swarovski gift bag.
