The moment I decided to attend fashion week I was instantly looking forward to attend to annual show by the amazing duo Charles and Ron. I’m always in awe of their pieces, always so elegant yet original and on trend. This year was no different. The show took place at the newly refurbished St.Elmo square in Valletta and this was perfect for this particular show. I love Valletta, I think anything in Valletta becomes instantly magical and oozing culture.
So when Clare Aguis opened the show and explained how the collection for SS15 was inspired by the city itself and it will serve as a way for women to not only wear the collection with pride but in Clare’s words wear “Valletta with pride”, I was ready to jump off my seat with excitement.
A projection of the Triton Fountain, the new parliament and the logo of the duo were projected against the blue lights which lit up St.Elmo Square beautifully. And we were off. The first set of pieces all had a variety of the Triton Fountain which was beautifully incorporated with lovely pastels and amazing cuts and accents.
The collection also included designs inspired by the design of the new parliament and once again this was incorporated with pastels and creamy shades. Charles and Ron are known for their lovely gowns and the ones in this collection did not disappoint…from lovely shades of peach to textured black pieces and back to inspiration from the fountain and the parliament. All the gowns were beautiful and unique yet elegant at the same time.
Needless to say, I wanted it all.
