The Mercedez-Benz Malta Fashion Week kicked off yesterday night with the first fashion show, a satellite event hosted outside of Valletta which showcased collections from some 40 brands, starting off with Aldo Shoes & Accessories, one of the main sponsors of MFWA. The other brands were Armani Jeans, Guess, Sunlab, 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, Lacoste, Stradivarius, Piazza Italia, New Look, River Island, Terranova, Bata, Calliope, Punt Roma, Skechers, Adidas, Bershka and Urban Jungle.
Some of the biggest trends were seventies' vibes with fringe detailing and flowy garments, floral prints in clashing colours and a good mix of colourful brights and earthy tones in different textures and materials.
Hair was trusted in the capable hands of Dean Gera stylists where the female models wore their tresses in sleek ponytails that complemented even the more formal looks. The makeup was applied by the very talented Biocare Academy makeup artists using Eva Garden Makeup. Bright lips were predominant all throughout with either complementing neutral eye makeup or even a pop of colour be it eyeshadow or coloured eyeliners - a major trend for the coming summer.
