Malta Fashion Week has begun! I am super excited to share images on my favourite shows and presentations and write a little about each too, with yesterday’s events being the first. The whole experience was pretty exciting – enjoying the designs whilst snapping photos from the front row and observing what other bloggers wore to the event. I chose to wear a laid-back outfit: a paid of wide-legged trousers and a striped shirt (I suppose I can’t hide the obsession any longer) worn by tying the sleeves into a bow. Here are some photos from two of the shows I attended!
ROSEMARIE ABELA presenting LA CUPOLA
Upon researching the designers prior to the start of Fashion Week, Rosemarie instantly caught my attention. Her designs were intriguing – Using materials you would not have assumed to be paired with certain pieces, each design flaunted creativity and originality. I walked into her showroom before attending the fashion show, and was first drawn to the chunkier pieces and wonderful use of knit. Most importantly – it was well-made. When the show began, I was in awe by the unconventional fabrics and cute little tassels included on so many of the pieces. The choice of shoes did throw me a little off-guard, but the hair and makeup suited each piece impeccably. My favourite was a dress on which the view of Valletta had been printed on.
YANA’S JEWELLERY presenting MYSTICAL BRANCHES
Inspired by Gustav Klimt’s ‘The Tree of Life’, Mystical Branches is a whole collection of chunky jewellery consisting of semi-precious stones, intertwined with ropes and gold wiring. The pieces are each vibrant and unique – and in my eyes, suitable to the Mediterranean lifestyle and choice of attire. I was personally drawn to the stones, as a lot of my jewellery consists of picking stones and having them custom-made to fit beautiful chains and delicate wiring. I feel that Yana’s collection, although exuberant, portrayed elegance – The key to combining so many elements and not overdoing each piece relies on the placement.
