London, Sep 19 2014 - Last week, the All-New Hyundai Genesis strutted its stuff on the streets of London as it received its first outing in the UK during London Fashion Week 2014.
The stylish executive sedan, as well as a fleet of ix35s, was used to chauffeur Storm Model Management’s catwalk models around London for their busy schedule of castings, shows and events.
Hyundai’s fleet of cars ensured that top catwalk models, such as Lina Berg, were able to rest their feet between shows and travel in high-end comfort and style.
Simon Chambers, MD at Storm Models, said: “The All-New Genesis looks absolutely stunning and has certainly been turning some heads during this year’s London Fashion Week. It’s stylish, spacious and luxurious, making it the ideal transport for whisking our girls to all of the shows and events.”
For the second time running, Hyundai UK also partnered up with ‘The Apartment’ by providing Santa Fes to chauffer its guest list of top bloggers around London. The Apartment is the ultimate hub for the latest fashion, lifestyle and beauty bloggers from around the globe and was this year based at the luxe St Martins Lane in central London.
Abisola Omole, CEO at The Apartment, said: “It’s important for the social influencers we invite and represent at The Apartment to arrive in style wherever they are headed to during London Fashion Week. The Santa Fes ensures that this happens and guarantees a comfortable ride”
Top fashion blogger, Shini Park, was also provided with her own ix35 to take her to all of the shows. Shini, who was born in Seoul and now London-based, is founder and author of the hugely popular fashion blog called ‘Park & Cube’.
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO at Hyundai UK, commented: “London Fashion Week, one of the world’s ‘big four’ major show, was the perfect environment for us to showcase the All-New Genesis premium sedan. This vehicle is currently the most fully-equipped and technologically advanced Hyundai model available. It has been a pleasure to chauffeur Storm Models, fashion bloggers and fashion media around London, helping them to fulfil their busy schedules.”
Limited numbers of All-New Genesis will be made available in Europe later this year.
