Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Malta & The Chamilia Malta Fashion Awards – The full run-down

MFWA16 - View at the top

I feel the anticipation growing every day as the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Malta  & The Chamilia Malta Fashion Awards draw nearer.

From 14th to 21st May, the devoted followers of fashion from around the Maltese Islands are in for a real treat.  The 6th edition of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is set to be a real triumph, with a full programme of shows and events featuring local and foreign designers and brands. The week’s culmination at The Chamilia Malta Fashion Awards is also gearing up to be one of the hottest tickets in town. The award nominations are out and the winners will be announced at the top fashion party of the year. See the full list of nominees here.

I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of the venue last week and I am sure we are in for an experience not to be forgotten.  Fort St. Angelo is stunning. I am passionate about anything that links to Maltese history and heritage, so I am super excited about this choice. Imagine cutting edge Maltese fashion and style talent, literally walking in the footsteps of centuries old architectural ingenuity and talent.

MFWA16 -Imposing bastions

I am sure the spectacle on stage is going to be breath taking. The organisers and designers have  taken plenty of care to utilise the backdrop of the Fort and the views beyond into the Grand Harbour, to enhance the impact of the creations being shown by the designers. With may of the shows starting in the early evening and taking in sunset over the harbour, the outdoor location will definitely have some spectacular colours to offer up.

If I have to give one piece of advice to the women coming to see the shows, it would be comfortable footwear. I climbed the almost 4 stories of ramps and steps in heels and it wasn’t the easiest jaunt, particularly on the way down.

Many of the shows are booked up already. However, there are still tickets left to The Chamilia Malta Fashion Awards on Saturday 21st May. Book your tickets here.
