No hotel is more excited about welcoming Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia 2019, than
award-winning, design-led hotel collection, Ovolo Hotels. Talking the talk, and walking the walk, Ovolo showcase their dedication to the Australian fashion industry, with a limitededition, ‘Ready-to-Wear’ hotel slipper with luxe accessories label, Mara & Mine.

As the official hotel sponsor of MBFWA and in signatureOvolo style, this collection of hotels
is bringing their mantra of effortless-living to elevate the MBFWA experience with this unique
designer collaboration. Made from quality black terrycloth with gold embroidered stitching,
a signature detail of the Mara & Mine brand, this collectively designed slipper is a playful
double entendre: ‘Ready-to-Wear’ and indeed, ready to wear after a long day on one’s
feet between “ready to wear” shows.

innoative accessorises label Mara & Mine to create the ultimate slipper, takes our guests
from robe to runway or from stilettos to slippers. With fashion at the core of Ovolo, this
collaboration has come to life on the toes of those staying at our Ovolo Hotels in Sydney
across the week and at MBFWA.”
