pullman-MBFWA-7606_Low resPullman, Australia’s largest 5-star hotel brand is proud to announce its second year as Official Hotel Partner of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA).

As a result, the hotels and resorts will be playing host to key Australian media, revered international fashion writers, bloggers, fashion buyers, and the nation’s top fashion designers.

Accor Pacific Chief Operating Officer, Simon McGrath, said: “Pullman is proud to support Australia’s leading fashion industry event. Fashion and hotels go hand in hand, as they both have a keen eye for good design and setting the trends making the partnership between Pullman and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia a natural fit.”

pullman-MBFWA-7368_Low ResPullman has the largest network of upscale hotels in Australia based in the most stylish cosmopolitan locations, from the edge of Hyde Park in Sydney to the fringe of fashionable St Kilda in Melbourne. In addition to their locations, the hotels offer vibrant experiences such as the picturesque ECQ Bar at Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour on the city’s famed waterfront and chic eatery Bacar with its chefs table at Pullman at Sydney Olympic Park.

While Pullman may be the newest 5-star hotel name in Australia, it was renowned for changing the face of American overnight accommodation in the 19th century when Pullman railway carriages – known as ‘palaces on wheels’ – were introduced. With opulent sleeping cars and fine dining carriages, they changed train travel from a mode of transportation into a luxury travel that incorporated aspirational design with functionality much like the fashion industry.

The brand personifies its stylish heritage through valued brand partnerships with MBFWA, Taittinger Champagne and well known chef Justin North that are each synonymous with style in their industries.
