Gaetano’s new collection titled DIVAS was a celebration of femininity, a celebration of powerful, strong women who want to be seen and heard – no shrinking violets here. His inspiration was music and female singers. Divas such as Mariah Carey, Beyonce and Cher were all muses for the different pieces.
The pieces are very glamarous, fit for a showgirl, or the glitziest party of all. What was interesting was his combination of modern trends such as flared pants into his pieces, it made them feel fresher. The grand finale of the show was Claudia Faniello singing Breathless, one of Malta’s best divas.
He went for a clean styling approach even in terms of hair and makeup and the result was very effective.
