MFW2014 - So Far, So GREAT

After last Thursday's awesome Launch party, the Fashion Shows took off today - exhibiting the work of two, now quite estabilihed, albeit young designers in the local industry - CF7 and Ritienne Zammit.

The show was located in Republic Street, Valletta - close to Teatru Rjal, with the beautiful architecture of Valletta as its backdrop (you will see some typical Maltese balconies in the background of most photos here in fact).

Creative Factory 7's show was inspired by 10 paintings - with butterflies playing the dominant role on most of the pieces shown.

Ritienne Zammit's AW14 Collection 'AMEN' wasn't as romantic - instead it was provocative. Inspired by churches and Christian allusions this collection was truly stir-inducing and thought-provoking - in a way which every designer should aspire to. The clothes spoke to the audience - I could here a few oohs and aahs in the background. It was a collection which made the mind think about and question the authority we are surrounded by - even religion itself. The damask fabric is typically used in Maltese churches but when juxtaposed with industrial material like plastic it creates an oxymoronic effect - and almost an ironic one.

Ritienne Zammit's use of plastic in her collections has become an almost expected feature. (See my post featuring a previous collection of Ritienne's here)

This was perhaps the iconic look from Amen with the Ave Maria as its soundtrack.
