Things we liked about the International Designers Show:
✔ The venue. We got to attend the show at the Auberge de Castille. Not everyone can say they had the opportunity to enter the beautiful Knights-era building, which houses not only the offices of the Prime Minister but also a lot of historical and artistic value.
✔ The models. Some of them were absolutely gorgeous: towering, statuesque, energetic and with a presence that remains etched into your brain. We also loved the mixture of foreign and Maltese talent walking down the runway together.
✔ The designs. We will go into further detail once we get to the individual photos, but to give you a brief outline of the guest designers, we saw Marella Ferrera hailing from Sicily, the Nigerian House of Jola, Fabryan and Muscat London by Kevin Muscat, Nigerian and Maltese respectively but both based in London, and Biljana Tipsarevic from Serbia.
✔ The reception. After the show, all the guests gathered in the courtyard to discuss what the fashion and the following Fashion Awards over a glass of wine or Nestle hot chocolate. We met a few familiar faces as well as some new ones before we headed down for drinks and chit-chat.
There was also a slight air of despondency as people came to the realisation that this would be the last show of the year. The excitement, however, for the upcoming Fashion Awards was a lot higher. Claire will provide you all with the coverage, as Nicole and Sandro went on a weekend getaway to the sister island of Gozo to watch something very special.
