Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Malta is one amazing week of superb fashion shows, parties and events that reach the highest standards of similar fashion weeks held in other fashion capitals worldwide. The magnificent capital city of Valletta showcases some of Malta’s best talent in the fashion industry from fashion designers to catwalk models, stylists and make-up artists, photographers, bloggers, writers and other fashionistas. The week of events culminates at Malta Fashion Awards show where the country’s top talent is awarded for their hard work in the previous year.
Preparations for the final awards night start months in advance with the setting up of a selection board to invite applications from eligible candidates. Once these are vetted for conformity with the regulations, an adjudication panel shortlists up to four nominees for each award category. These nominees are then published and the general public can participate in public voting making up to 10% of the final weighting. The remaining 90% of the voting comes from an expert panel elected purposely for each category. These panels change annually in each edition.
Now in its 18th edition, this is the most anticipated fashion party of the year. Apart from handing out the much coveted awards to the top people in fashion this year, the event includes spectacular hair shows and highlights from fashion shows held during the week from Maltese and international designers from various countries.
Several international media are expected to cover the event.
