There is a natural sexiness to her designs, and next to the all-new 2013 SL63 AMG convertible, we have the perfect combination for aficionados seeking sun, style and performance."
"Mercedes-Benz is a symbol of elegance, quality, and high performance; and Vitamin A shares a similar vision of glamour and superior craftsmanship," says Amahlia Stevens. "I am sincerely honored to have been selected as the Mercedes-Benz Presents designer for this season in Miami."
