Hey guys 🙂
Today is the opening of the 3rd Malta Fashion Week, which will continue until the 11th. Yesterday I was able to attend the press conference, sponsored by Vodafone, Mercedes-Benz and The Baystreet complex.
I loved catching up with some of the island’s most fashionable whilst waiting for the press conference to start.
Style Section: Marisa Grima
I really liked the outfit that Marisa was wearing. She Always looks so cool and comfortable yet smart. I adore the Floral Blazer and check out those awesome boots!!

After all the socialising the conference started…
Over the last 15 years Adrian Mizzi (who is the executive producer) has worked hard with his team to bring Malta’s fashion industry to a competitive level.
This year Mr Mizzi proudly told us how even though only in it’s 3rd year that “Brands invited for Malta Fashion Week opened their businesses in Malta, guests even brought property and we managed to bring over to our shores media, designers, and stylists from at least 15 different countries for the first time.” This is an amazing feat for Malta bringing in and generating investment. Mr Mizzi then told us “This year we had a much bigger interest for foreign participation from a diverse range of countries from Sweden to Nigeria” I am so excited to see the international designers show which will be held on the 10th May!
Last year I had featured on two displays for MFW in Valletta, Its a beautiful display that you have to go see. I am sure this year will be spectacular. This picture was taken by the fantastic photographer Karl Cutujar.

There are lots of shows that I am excited to see:
Mon 6th: Charles and Ron: Having spoken to Ron recently I am really ecstatic to see this collection. I am sure it will impress and is one not to be missed. Charles & Ron designs are for women who not only love fashion, but also have a passion for life; confident women who like to be noticed’. The C&R collections are inspired by ‘Silver Screen Hollywood Glamour’ and have a distinct Mediterranean influence.
Wed 8th: New Designers: I think this is one of the shows I look forward to seeing the most as it boasts the collection of new and upcoming local talents. I am really looking forward to see the collection by Martina Spiteri for her brand Celeste in collaboration with Pavlistyle. I was with Pavli soon after she picked up the fabric and I can tell this is going to be a cool collection!
Thurs 9th: Fersani: Fersani is a new brand created in 2011 but has received tons of recognition. Every design is a reflection and recreation of elements found in our natural surroundings. Mary Grace’s inspiration lies in the beauty that she finds around her – the colours, the patterns, the textures and the energy.
Fri 10th: International Designers: I cant wait to see the collections on this show. I am sure it will be intriguing to see creations from international talents. When I had gone to the Runway shows I loved seeing the brilliance and creativity that the show brings. I am sure that MFW will be equally impressive. There is nothing better than seeing the energy of a designers clothing brought to life on the catwalk.
Sat 11th: The awards show: This is one I def cant miss! With so much talent on this small island its tough competition and I cant wait to see who wins which categories! I wish them all the best of luck.
Which shows are you excited about?
