Local label Paris Georgia has been named as this year’s winner of the Mercedes-Benz Presents award.

The award is a global initiative, recognizing those designers that are dedicated to delivering garments of the highest quality, through innovative design and unique style — aligning with like-minded designers based on their shared philosophies and values.

Paris Georgia joins predecessors like Carolina Herrera, Dion Lee and Derek Lam, and local labels including Zambesi and Knuefermann.

Designers Paris Mitchell-Temple and Georgia Cherrie will showcase their Fall Winter 2020 collection at New Zealand Fashion Week on Tuesday 27th August. The show will also feature two beautiful bespoke outfits designed especially for the event.

“Partnering with Mercedes-Benz has always been a dream of ours,” says Georgia Cherrie. “Mercedes-Benz is affiliated with so many fashion brands we admire all over the globe, it is truly an honour to sit alongside these designers.”

“Our label is dedicated to discerning beauty and timeless femininity,” Paris Mitchell-Temple says. “To that end, we’re always looking to create classic pieces that our customers can wear regardless of trends or seasons.”

“We are excited to see our commitment to fashion unfold on a local stage, complementing the brand’s global involvement in more than 50 fashion platforms around the world,” said Lance Bennett, General Manager of Mercedes-Benz Cars New Zealand. “We are honoured to be partnered with Paris Georgia, and to showcase their collection at New Zealand Fashion Week 2019. Paris Georgia is a brand that prides itself in producing garments to make women feel empowered and confident.”
