Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia is the latest event to be cancelled in a string of local and international events being postponed and called off due to Coronavirus fears.

Natalie Xentia, Executive Director of IMG's fashion events group for the Asia Pacific region, commented "Due to the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC)'s mandate against holding non-essential, organised public gatherings of more than 500 people in light of global health concerns regarding COVID-19, we regret to share that Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia 2020 will not take place. We thank our incredible designers, producers, partners and staff for their support of the Australian fashion community and look forward to celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2021."
