MALTA - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week MALTA, supported by Estetika, a ten day festa celebrating Malta’s fashion scene – the style, the glamour, the people and the industry - opened last Thursday.
“We are very excited to open this year’s fashion week with a free for all public event that’s of an artistic and cultural nature”, remarked Adrian J. Mizzi, the executive producer of Malta Fashion Week. Whilst most fashion week events are free of charge, an invite or ticket is generally required; however the fashion photography exhibition has been purposely put up in a public space that is freely accessible to anyone so that everyone may participate in this national scale event.

These are joined by a number of international renowned photographers namely, David Leslie Anthony, Julia Kiecksee, Raya photographer, Bruno Sabastia, Jakub Kaminski, Stefan Bourson and Anja Collins and selected photographers from the University for Creative Arts UK, namely Simon Pruciak, Dominika Staczyk, Eeva Rinne, Siru Kivist.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Malta forms part of an international circuit of similar events around the world and is being made possible with the support of Mercedes-Benz, Estetika, Fimbank, Airmalta, Aldo Shoes & Accessories, and Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa. The week of daily activities includes fashion shows from prominent and upcoming Maltese and foreign fashion designers, cultural and artistic activities and parties, culminating at the Trussardi Jeans Malta Fashion Awards on Saturday 12th May at the MFCC in Ta’ Qali.
