Super Bowl Champion New York Giants’ Victor Cruz Kicks Off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

With a opening statement that he lost his voice at the Super Bowl parade on Tuesday, Super Bowl Champs Giants’ wide receiver, Victor Cruz was on hand to cut the ribbon to officially open Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center yesterday(I give him major kudos for doing this without a coat on as the temp dropped to the low 30’s). Cruz was joined by Stephanie Winston-Wolkoff, Director of Fashion at Lincoln Center, Peter Levy, SVP and Managing Director at IMG Fashion, Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton, Naeem Khan, this season’s Mercedes-Benz Presents Designer, and Lisa Holladay, Manager of Brand Experience Marketing, Mercedes-Benz USA.

“It’s an honor to be here to help kick off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York,” said Cruz. “It’s been quite an incredible week for the City—our Super Bowl win, the great homecoming parade yesterday, and now the beginning of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. I’m very grateful to my fans that came out to support us yesterday and today and looking forward to checking out some shows this week.”

“Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center is internationally recognized as the premier industry event to showcase cutting-edge fashion,” said Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Director, Fashion at Lincoln Center. “We’re excited to open our doors and show the world all the innovative new designs that will hit the runways this season.”

“IMG and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week continue to put the world’s leading fashion designers and brands center stage in New York City the fashion capital of the world,” said Peter Levy, SVP and Managing Director, IMG Fashion Worldwide. “It’s great to have a huge star like Victor Cruz join us to launch the week and help us in welcoming all our guests. As New Yorkers we’re tremendously proud of the Giants’ Super Bowl victory and can’t wait to see Victor sitting front row at some shows this week.”

“I was incredibly honored to help Victor kick off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week today and celebrate his and his team’s incredible success on Sunday,” said Naeem Khan, this season’s Mercedes-Benz Presents designer. “I’m very excited to present my collection this season and this is a great way to get it all underway.”

“It’s such an honor to be here at the opening of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week,” said Kate Upton. “Fashion Week in New York is such an iconic event; it’s great to be a part of it.”

“Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is always exciting and having Victor here along with our Presents Designer Naeem Khan to get things underway is a special moment,” said Lisa Holladay, Manager of Brand Experience Marketing at Mercedes-Benz USA. “The month of February is a ball of energy for the Big Apple and that continues as we kick off the fashion festivities at Lincoln Center and the start of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.”
