Fashion show highlights young designers

Mercedes-Benz Start Up held at Three Point Motors on Aug. 13

Emerging fashion designers will get a chance to show their best at a unique fashion show in Victoria on Aug. 13.

The Mercedes-Benz Start Up is an ongoing initiative that provides a national platform to discover and support emerging Canadian fashion designers.

To be eligible to participate, designers must have a business that has been operating for less than five years.

This three-city semi-final phase will produce six designers who will then participate in the national finale at World MasterCard Fashion Week in October.

The Mercedes-Benz Start Up event will be hosted at Three Point Motors at 2546 Government St., from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

Guests will be served champagne, wine, entertainment and catered hors d’oeuvres.
