MFWA2017 Calendar of Events LaunchedApril 29, 2017
Throughout the months leading up to Malta Fashion Week, we are shining the limelight on a few of our local designers who have been showcased over the last few years and we will be showing you an exclusive sneak peek into their upcoming collections.
Our ninth look is at DESIREE with Less is (not) More: the Maltese Edition – by DESIREE.
Is the term Less is More always true? How much does it apply to you in; Design, Fashion, Finance, Relationships, Fitness, Health, and last of all, culture and national heritage?
In the light of recent events, some of our Maltese heritage, through natural cause, was lost forever when the Azure window in Dwejra collapsed, leaving no sign it ever even existed. This was the first time in recent history whereby a natural act of nature brought up so many different emotions amongst both the Maltese and foreigners. One which is hard to describe and believe. This season, therefore, DESIREE has designed and created from scratch a collection of handmade, real leather bags to pay tribute to some of these popular and well-loved Maltese icons which are dear to our hearts, and may not be there forever.
The collection challenges and toys with the over-used term ”Less Is More”, a phrase adopted by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1947, which was originally associated with Minimalist architecture.
The Malta Fashion Association supports the participation of emerging Maltese designers.
