Catwalks and more
My only skill when it comes to fashion is the ability to spell the word correctly. So I can’t comment on trends, styles and quality. But I do know the MQ has its fingers firmly on the pulse of contemporary culture.
So you can expect the MQ Vienna Fashion Week (presented by ŠKODA), organised by creative headz, to fulfill its promise.
For starters, dozens of designers present their work, with well over 50 hours of fashion shows across the week to intrigue and inspire through creations from home and abroad. The international flavour is illustrated by, for example, three designers from Indonesia starting Tuesday’s shows and Thai fashion night dominating the Thursday evening.
The Fashion Week kicks off with a show from Berlin-based designer and label owner, Marcel Ostertag. Sunday night then ends with the now traditional closing show choreographed by Mario Soldo.
But it’s not just about the catwalk. A large exhibition area, for example, features current collections for you to browse, try on, and purchase.
(You might also enjoy some ancillary events going on as part of the wider Vienna Fashion Festival.)
2019 dates and tickets
The Fashion Week runs from Monday, September 9th to Sunday, September 15th.
Shows take place daily in the afternoons and evenings. The exhibition opens from the 12th to the 15th, finishing at 10pm and starting at 2pm (Thursday/Friday) or midday (Saturday/Sunday).
