Hosting Models since 2010
For the 9th consecutive year now, Wombat’s The City Hostel is an official model accommodation for the MQVFW.19.
The Fashion Week takes place in Museum Quartier, just a 10-minute stroll from either of the Wombat’s in Vienna. It has become an ever-growing event, that may not yet put Vienna in the focus of the fashion world as the fashion weeks in Paris, Milano and London do. But it definitely puts fashion in the focus of Vienna, as the creative fashion designers and fashionistas of the region gather and mix with an international audience. It’s this mingle that creates a great personal, yet professional atmosphere. Over 10.000 guests visited the shows last year and many recurring visitors came back for the shops. The shows feature local labels, Viennese design schools, as well as renown international brands.
A special thing about MQVFW is the long term cooperation with designers from Thailand. On September 12, they are celebrating their 10th anniversary. On this occasion, three Austrian and three Thai designers show their collaboration representing the history of 150 years of trade relations between the Kingdom and Austria.
The event will start off with excerpts of Marcel Ostertag’s collections “Heroes” and “Lovers”. The organisers are really excited that the designer is back in Vienna presenting his work. Marcel Ostertag is a former ballet dancer of the Viennese Opera Staatsballett. For his autumn/winter collection was inspired among other things by David Bowie, Grace Jones and Doris Ostertag, the designer’s mother.
At the same time, there will be many pop-up stores, fashion-specific events and parties during the whole event. Vienna will turn into great fashion festival. Every day a different event will take place at different hotspots in the city. An absolute must for fashion fans and the ideal platform for creative minds. The official Vienna Fashion Week Party 2019 will be on September 14, at Pratersauna including VIE I PEE. 5 floors and 10 DJ will be ready for fashionistas and party animals.
In short, the MQ Vienna Fashion Week is a hidden gem in the fashion world and would definitely add a great, authentic, off-the-beaten-path experience to your stay in Vienna.
