Oliver Tolentino received a great honor this week when the organizers of Vienna Fashion Week announced the invitation for the fashion designer to present at MQ VIENNA FASHION WEEK.22 (MQVFW.22) this coming September in Vienna, Austria. Aurum 999,9 MagBook, the luxury coffee table magazine book, will sponsor Tolentino’s show.
Tolentino, who is based in Beverly Hills, California, and has dressed almost a hundred Hollywood celebrities, will be the first Filipino designer ever to present a collection at the VIENNA FASHION WEEK. Vienna is a European fashion capital, famous for hosting over 400 formal balls during its social season.
MQVFW.22 will take place September 12 – 17. Creative Headz partners Elvyra Geyer, Zigi Mueller-Matyas, and Maria Oberfrank have organized MQVFW for fourteen years, producing a varied program for fashionistas, trade experts, and international press.
MQVFW.22 will present 36 shows, 1,000 designs, and 140 models. Hourly fashion shows will take place in a 500 person-capacity tent located in the famous MuseumsQuartier. MQVFW.22 draws approximately 5,000 guests during the week and attracts more than 20 TV, print, and online media partners.
The opening show of Vienna Fashion Week.22 on September 12, styled by a well known Austrian stylist, will present one outfit of each participating designer. Organizers have asked Oliver Tolentino to attend and present one look on that night in advance of his 30-piece collection fashion show on the night of September 14.
When reached for comment, Tolentino shared, “This is a tremendous honor to be invited to present in Vienna and to be hosted in such a historically amazing city with a rich history of fashion and with so many attending fashionistas.” He added, “I’m looking forward to presenting a fall/winter collection in season.”
