New York Ushers In Mercedes 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lincoln Center is buzzing with the start of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week as it gets underway from February 7(th) to 14(th), 2013 with more than 90 designers presenting their Fall 2013 collections. Two Mercedes-Benz vehicles will amplify this theme. The all-new 2014 CLA-Class, set to establish a new entry segment within Mercedes-Benz and referred to as a four-door style rebel. And, the SLS AMG Black Series, a show-stopping super car known for its iconic Gullwing doors and powerhouse performance. The CLA-inspired looks styled by Nachmani feature high-end designs that are the staples of everyday fashion wardrobes, which reflect the philosophy behind the CLA - cutting-edge automotive design, luxury and performance, yet extremely accessible.
