Villa Francia has now become home base for fashion shows in aid of charity. Every year without fail for the last three years I have made my way up the slightly steep street that would lead to the stunning villa with it luscious gardens. This residence would open its doors to tonnes of crew members, amongst whom stylists, models, makeup artists, hair stylists, and more, all working tirelessly and gearing up for yet another fashion show.
This May it was the team behind DIZZ Group, spearheaded by Diane Izzo (hence DIZZ), who offered an eventful evening filled to the brim with catwalk shows representing an array of brands, live music and also an informational video on the initiatives that were organised in aid of charity. The following brands offered up new items and trends for the season, showcasing not only summer must-haves, but also ideal outfit ideas for weddings and special occasions (in alphabetical order): Brooks Brothers, Calliope, Elisabetta Franchi, Goldenpoint, Guess, Harmont & Blaine, Liu Jo, Paul & Shark, Terranova, and Trussardi Jeans.
For this purpose, I have edited a more visual rendition of the event and favourite looks, particularly because I wanted to share the musical segments that added a special touch. Well done to all but special thanks goes to Diane Izzo, Yvonne Desira, Noelene Miggiani, and Marisa Grima. Before proceeding to the video, here are snippets from backstage, and some catwalk looks, courtesy of Mark Soler Photography.
