Hey there my lovelies,
Welcome back to my Blog!
That time of the week for a new post and another installment from my BTS (behind the scenes) posts, that are meant to introduce to you the new #collections from our #talented designers. Today’s post is the last from the series since tomorrow sees the start of the much awaited Malta Fashion Week and Awards with the Official Launch Party.
Once again, thank you for the nice feedback after my previous posts which if any of you missed them you can catch them here ,here. and here. For today’s post we introduce you to Maria Cutajar and her Dejjem f’Qalbna. collection showing during MFWA on the 28th May and of course a couple of ‘sneek peek’ photos are here too.
So I caught up with Maria and needless to say the idea of these post is to get to know the inspiration behind the new collection for this year …… so if you want to know what he told me then read on 🙂
What is the inspiration behind this collection?
The inspiration behind this collection is my Grandfather. My grandfather was a great model maker. I always remember him creating models for balconies. Every time he used to take us out he used to buy postcards of balconies and later that week he would spend hours and does not stop until he finishes it. My inspiration is my grandfather’s balconies and created a print out of the shapes in these models.
What did you enjoy most about designing the collection?
I can’t really choose … I love the whole process. But seeing all the collection brought together is the most amazing.
What was the most challenging part of designing this collection?
The most challenging part was trying not to be to emotional, I really miss my grandfather but I am really happy that I kept my promise.
Does this collection reflect your personal fashion tastes?
Yes, A lot. I love dressing up even though lately with all the work time is very limited and comfortable clothes are the easy way.
I now really cannot really wait to see Maria’s creations come to life. So this post concludes the final post from the BTS series. I am really excited for Fashion Week? Will I see any of you? If not do not worry make sure to stay tuned to all my social as I will flooding them with all the latest updates.
Until next time,
