INTRODUCING THE MERCEDES-BENZ A-CLASS SEDAN
Fashion fans attending Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane this year can expect to be among the first in Australia to have an up-close encounter with the all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan.
For the first time, the much-loved A-Class shares the slinky profile and proportions that has made the C-Class and E-Class sedans so beloved, in a feature-packed compact layout that has been designed for style-conscious urban dwellers.
Like the A-Class hatchback, the sedan is a technological tour de force, including a widescreen fully digital cockpit and the advanced ‘Hey Mercedes’ voice recognition.
Take a closer look at the Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan on arrival at Howard Smith Wharves before Brisbane’s most beloved fashion show kicks off.

'MY LIFE IS MURDER' ON NETWORK 10
Coming soon to Network 10, My Life is Murder is a contemporary mystery series starring international feminist icon and pop culture legend, Lucy Lawless, in her first Australian lead role.
Lucy plays complex, charismatic and compelling investigator Alexa Crowe who can’t help fighting the good fight – whether it’s solving murders or combatting the small frustrations of daily life. She’s a woman who just refuses to give in. Or give up. Or even shut up.
Set in Melbourne, My Life is Murder is a “mystery of the week” series in the tradition of Elementary and House and co-stars Ebony Vagulans and Bernard Curry. Another great Australian drama series to add to your viewing list!

THE FANTAUZZO LUXURY HOTEL
Carved into the cliff under Story Bridge, with an impressive presence, overlooking the new Howard Smith Wharves precinct, The Fantauzzo takes inspiration from acclaimed Australian painter Vincent Fantauzzo. This luxury hotel features 166 suites, with custom contemporary furnishings, three original artworks and 500 giclee prints of Fantauzzo’s most recognised works.
A seamless combination of art, design and functionality, the hotel is a powerful representation of contemporary creativity, with connected and inspiring spaces for guests to discover. The six-storey hotel also offers four distinct food and beverage outlets as well as an impressive rooftop pool boasting spectacular views of the Brisbane River and CBD, bar, gym and three conference rooms.
Both iconically chic, Scotchmans Hill and the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane are a perfect pairing – each as bold, distinctive and visionary as the other.
Nestled among the rich volcanic soil of Mount Bellarine on the Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria’s south coast, Scotchmans Hill's award winning wines are a true reflection of the beautiful and pristine environment in which they are grown.
On pour at this year’s MBFF Brisbane are the Scotchmans Hill and Swan Bay collections - both immediately drinkable offerings that deliver Scotchmans Hill’s signature cool-climate elegance along with plenty of complexity.
