Malta Fashion Week: the Point Fashion Show

Tigne Point square was all done up for the opening of this year’s Malta Fashion Week and Awards, with around 40 brands presenting a sneak peak of their looks during the first show, a satellite event taking place outside Valletta. The abundance of colour was what caught my eye, as well as some key trends that seemed to reflect a carefully thought-out theme running through: from floral to fringe, sport to bright colours, and some neutral looks to balance it all out. Needless to say, it was an interesting display of ready-to-wear items for a range of occasions, and some pieces would be welcome additions to many a curated wardrobe, including mine.

So, the brands were: Aldo, Guess, Sunlab, Armani Jeans, Debenhams, Hilfiger Denim, Sophia, Massimo Dutti, Gant, Lacoste, Liu Jo, Garbo, Luisa Spagnoli, Esprit, Nine West, Springfield, Piccinino, Mango, Nike, Pull & Bear, Oysho, Scholl, M Vintage, Stradivarius, Piazza Italia, New Look, River Island, Terranova, Bata, Calliope, Punt Roma, Sketchers, Adidas, Bershka and Urban Jungle.

Here is what grabbed my attention

1. Ode to the 70s: breezy fabrics, fringe and a celebration of fashion in its heyday

2. Colour-splashed botanical prints: dashing, uninhibited and bold

3. Razzle dazzle with the robust separates or ankle-grazing gowns

4. Summer time = beach time, and those dreamy kimonos


5. Bouts of colour, from clothes to bags


6. Mix of colours and fabrics, but mostly those gravitating towards the earth tone shades
