The first show for Day 3 of MFWA was a presentation. The stage was set up with a few deck chairs, umbrellas, a bar and atmosphere that seemed to transport us to a place like Anacapri. Needless to say, this background was befitting to Carla Grima’s collection. Starting off with swimwear, the presentation fused beach wear pieces with more evening renditions. My absolute favourite was that rich blue flowing piece – even the model who wore it could not resist flashing a big smile, how can you fault it? I also liked the orange-based floral wrap playsuit (I would probably want that as a longer dress!). The combination of the pieces and the relaxed atmosphere worked well to transport us not only to a seaside-like place, but also to a time where it was more possible to slow down and enjoy oneself – the luxury of il dolce far niente or something to that tune. We were abloom with nostalgia for sure!
