Mercedes-Benz is empowering fashion enthusiasts to explore their personal style through a social platform that allows for the creation of virtual “sets” powered by Polyvore.
The Star Style Challenge initiative www.mbstarstyle.com kicks-off Tuesday to usher in the start of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center and continues through Feb. 16, 2012.
The Star Style Challenge platform incorporates imagery of inspirational fashions and Mercedes-Benz cars allowing fashion enthusiasts to build “sets,” ala virtual mood boards.
It asks one simple question: What does ultimate star style look like on the red carpet at the Academy Awards? Mercedes-Benz Presents Designer, Naeem Khan, and other notable accessories from Ranjana Khan and Bowens Bergeron can be selected as part of the set creation.
“Mercedes-Benz vehicles have always been an expression of individualism and style,” said Lisa Holladay, manager of brand experience marketing at Mercedes-Benz USA. “We are excited to see where people will take their inspiration when they have an opportunity to incorporate the three-pointed star.”[ Visit the ultimate destination for global tech trends and news – RMN Digital – where technology gets simplified. ]
