The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid fashion committee has decided to establish a series of parameters as a measure to gain a greater insight into the quality of the contents of the fashion show. These will consist of assessment criteria that will serve as the basis for admitting new designers, as well as to obtain an outline of those currently participating in the fashion show.

There will be three types of parameters, relative to quality, corporate structure, and communication and marketing, with an assessment value of 50%, 30% and 20% respectively (we are talking about an assessment base, not a mathematical assessment), which will foster excellence and transparency in MBFWMAdrid procedures.

The form must be completed during the last week of September by the designers that are currently listed on the calendar, but also by all those that wish to be included, with the exception of the quality parameter that must be assessed by the fashion committee.
