To support Moscow and Russian designers during the pandemics-caused recession, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia together with Fashion Fund are launching major grant support for designers from throughout Russia. Grants from Fashion Fund will enable Moscow and Russian designers to arrange runway shows at Manege during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia without any entry fee. Dozens of gifted Moscow and Russian brands and fashion designers will present their new collections at the international event. In the new season, the Fashion Week online schedule will comprise shows from different venues of Moscow, as well as other Russian cities. MBFW Russia will be livestreamed all over the world at social networks and media websites, concept stores’ and showrooms’ online platforms.

“Shows have always been and remain a key communication tool for brands. As we’ve learnt empirically during the pandemics – we’ve successfully held three global-scale online events – livestreaming of real shows works much better than any video content. The post-lockdown phygital format, when online activities are used to support the offline ones, will be brought to Manege, and the livestream will become a rendezvous point. This season, the Fashion Week participants will catch more attention both in Moscow and abroad,” said Alexander Shumsky, President of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia.
