Event:
Wine and dine whilst admiring the latest in fashion
Adelaide's premier fashion event Adelaide Fashion Festival is just over 2 months away and one of the most anticipated events that will be making a comeback will be the Mercedes-Benz Unley Long Lunch.

Transforming the iconic shopping and lifestyle precinct - King William Road - there will be a long lunch that will bring together celebrations of new season fashion, sumptuous food, fine, local wines and the return of the sunshine!

Held on October 12 (Friday), the Mercedes-Benz Unley Long Lunch will give guests with a sneak preview of what is to come at Adelaide Fashion Festival and the event will be presented as a joint collaboration between Mercedes-Benz Adelaide & Unley. Fashion lovers can expect to see new season trends, purchase their runway-ready looks and experience a taste of what is to come.

"Mercedes-Benz Unley is committed to supporting local businesses as well as aligning ourselves with Adelaide's premier fashion events, and we see the Mercedes-Benz Unley Long Lunch as a perfect fit. This event brilliantly showcases all that King William Road has to offer and we are excited to be the naming rights sponsor for another year." - Drew Ford (Mercedes-Benz Unley General Manager)

Spring / Summer fashion from a diverse range of Australian fashion labels will make an appearance at this Lunch, where guests will be inspired with new trends to add to their wardrobes for the season ahead.

The 2018 event will maintain a greater focus on the shared experience of fashion and its ability to connect people in new and unique ways. Two elongated tables will stretch over 200m of the iconic strip, with sprawling grazing platters and shared plates spanning the length of the event, bringing a new meaning to the 'Long Lunch.'

Guests will be offered with shared food from some of King William Road's leading restaurants, using the very best, fresh, and local produce.

For the first time, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Unley Long Lunch has partnered with local charity, Parkinson's South Australia. The not-for-profit organisation provides support and information to people living with movement disorders and their loved ones, including the 8,000 people in South Australia who suffer from Parkinson's disease.

"Parkinson's SA is thrilled to be the charity partner for the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Unley Long Lunch. As a King William Road trader, it's a natural collaboration as we already have long-standing relationships with many of our neighbours and use them as our suppliers when we can both for business and personally." - Olivia Nassaris (Parkinsons SA CEO)

With headquarters located on King William Road, the charity is a fitting association for the Hyde Park event and one that The Mercedes-Benz Unley Long Lunch is proud to support.
