“Glance at Mazda” Fashion Auto Party
You’ve heard of a car show. You’ve heard of a fashion show. So what could be more logical than combining the two? Not a bad idea, but someone’s already beat you to it. On September 18 at Moscow’s Impex-Mazda car showroom, Mazda and the Russian fashion label Glance joined forces to present their respective designs for fall 2008. All eyes were on the sleek, elegant models, some clad in the hottest couture for autumn, others buff ed and polished to a gleaming shine and sporting that new car smell. Here’s what the automotive and sartorial sides of the event had in common: an appreciation for sophisticated design and quality manufacturing, an interest in the successful marriage of aesthetically pleasing form and effective function, and just the right balance between comfort and style. Here’s what they didn’t: The Mazda CX-9s on display had spare tires, while the svelte fashion models most certainly did not.
