Mercedes-Benz is once again a major presence at Spanish fashion’s most important event, with 26 years as the main sponsor and 25 since the extravaganza changed its name to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid. The brand with the three-pointed star logo has close ties to the sector and is firmly established as one of the main players in the national and international fashion industry. This time, it will present its futuristic concept car for the first time in Spain. The Mercedes-Benz Vision One-Eleven, a 100% electric vehicle, is a reinterpretation of the mythical C 111 of the 70s that represents an icon of luxury. As Gorden Wagener, the company’s head of design, says, “icons are what makes the difference between traditional design and luxury”. This will also be the 23rd time that the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Talent Award will recognise the brilliance of emerging creators who will show their designs on Sunday, 18 February.

L’Oréal Paris, MBFWMadrid’s official makeup artist and hair stylist, has been uniting fashion and beauty through its sponsorship for 25 years. This time, at the 79th edition of the fashion event, the firm will focus on female empowerment and the importance of the eyes in beauty looks. To coincide with its latest launch – Panorama mascara – it has designed a “Desfile de Miradas” or “Eyes Catwalk”, a digital creation space in which attendees will take to the catwalk to show off the panoramic look, with a defined volume for visibly larger eyes. Female empowerment will be out in force in the “Because you’re worth it” area of the stand.

In addition, to promote the business success of these designers, Allianz has called the sixth edition of the Allianz EGO Confidence in Fashion award to recognise creatives who, with their dedication and vision, go a step further to make great things appear.

Iberia will be back at the new edition, and as in previous events, the airline will have a Premium Lounge as a meeting place for designers, highly-valued customers of Iberia, distributors, other faces from the Spanish fashion scene, and other companies. The Premium lounge is framed in the airline’s Talent on board initiative.

In the meantime, students at the Official University Degree in Fashion Design at the University of Design, Innovation and Technology (UDIT) will present their Lo Eterno (Eternal) collection for the coming Fall/Winter 2024/2025 season.

The young designers will have the opportunity to present their collection in a fabulous location, the Galería de Cristal or ‘Glass Gallery’ of the Palacio de Cibeles, with support from the Madrid City Council.

This creative industry is already part of Madrid’s cultural legacy and a major incentive for high-value tourism, attracted by the talent of internationally recognised designers. The region has also become a magnet for shopping fans. The retail hubs of the neighbourhoods of Salamanca, Salesas, Preciados-Gran Vía and Fuencarral, as well as other spots outside the capital, offer everything from the most exclusive to the most bohemian stores, uniting tradition and modernity in a trade that is also characterised by the freedom of trading hours”.
