This season's Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge is getting its new look from the design team behind the newly launched DVF Home Collection. The Star Lounge, which caters to designers, celebrities, and Mercedes-Benz owners, features a mix of DVF home furnishing and accessories to create a luxurious and chic experience during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center from February 10, 2011 to February 17, 2011.
Through a collaborative effort with fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg's new home line, the new Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge creates the ultimate VIP experience for guests taking in the latest fashion looks on the runway during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with more than 100 designers presenting their Fall 2011 collections including Diane von Furstenberg, Carolina Herrera, Vera Wang, Michael Kors, Derek Lam, Tommy Hilfiger, Prabal Gurung, Nicole Miller, Charlotte Ronson, Tory Burch, and Betsey Johnson.
