Mumbai: Mercedes-Benz India and London-based fashion entertainment company Stylo have joined hands to present a `fashion grand prix` in the run-up to the inaugural Indian Formula 1 Grand Prix.

The event will comprise a theme-based fashion show and an auto show where Mercedes-Benz will showcase its cars.

"The bold and sometimes decadent style of fashion parties has made the by-invitation Stylo a much-coveted VIP invitation during the F1 of recent years," Dato Nancy Yeoh, president of Stylo International, said here Tuesday.

Launched in Kuala Lumpur to celebrate the 10th Malaysian Petronas Formula 1 Grand Prix in early 2008 by shoe designer Jimmy Choo and the Malaysian queen, Mercedes-Benz partnered Stylo for all its F1 parties in Malaysia since its inception.
