A new partnership in the fashion business has just been announced: The initiators of Berlin Fashion Week, MB Capital Fashion Berlin and Premium Exhibitions, want to expand their collaboration with IMG (International Management Group), which organizes Olympus Fashion Week in New York, Mercedes Australia Fashion Week in Melbourne and Sydney and the Singapore Fashion Festival, among others.

With this step the position of Berlin as one of the international fashion capitals will be strengthened. For the summer edition of Berlin Fashion Week (to be held July 13-19, 2006) the organizers already plan to present more international designer catwalk shows.
