Oliver Tolentino was honored this week when the organizers of Vienna Fashion Week extended an invitation to the fashion designer to present at MQ VIENNA FASHION WEEK.22 (MQVFW.22) this coming September in Vienna, Austria. Aurum 999,9 MagBook, a luxury coffee table magazine, sponsors Tolentino’s show.
Tolentino, who is based in Beverly Hills, California and has dressed nearly a hundred Hollywood celebrities, will be the first Filipino designer to present a collection at Vienna Fashion Week. Vienna is the fashion capital of Europe, famous for hosting over 400 formal balls during the social season.
MQVFW.22 takes place September 12 – 17. Creative Heathz partners Elvira Gier, Ziggy Müller-Matthias and Maria Oberfrank have organized MQVFW for fourteen years, producing a diverse program for fashionistas, business professionals and the international press.
MQVFW.22 features 36 exhibits, 1,000 designs and 140 models. Hourly fashion shows are held in the 500-person capacity pavilion in the famous Museum Quarter. MQVFW.22 attracts around 5,000 guests per week and more than 20 TV, print and online media partners.
On September 12, the opening show of the Vienna Fashion Week by famous Austrian stylist Style 22 will present one outfit from each participating designer. The organizers asked Oliver Tolentino to attend the 30-piece fashion show on the night of September 14th and present one look that night.
Reached for comment, Tolentino shared, “It’s an honor to be invited to perform in Vienna and to be hosted in such a historically fascinating city with so much fashion history and so many fashionistas.” He added, “I look forward to presenting the Fall/Winter collections in time.”
