The SARTO event at Malta Fashion Week was a satellite, private affair, it was a lovely event. The theme was Asian, the event took place in the beautiful Gardens of Serenity in Santa Lucia and right in theme there was some delicious cuisine by Zest, creative lighting and even some wonderful Asian dancer-performers. SARTO showcased the wonderful Spring/Summer 2015 collections of Blumarine and Dolce & Gabbana and Armani (menswear).

Birkenstocks, Birkenstocks, Birkenstocks - never has a shoe elicited so much hate and love simultaneously. Once regarded as the ugly shoe tasteless tourists wore with socks, over the last decade it's been worn by everyone from those mentioned tasteless tourists, to celebrities, to fashion bloggers.

After a hiatus in my Friday Morning Family Corner Series - I'm back and today the focus is on little girls between 0 - 18 months.
The new summer stock (did you know there ae entire fashion departments dedicated to babies ?) is in the stores now so I visited KIABI to check out they're new offerings.

Another week has gone by and I'm now more than halfway through the PLAN H experiment. My weight is now down to 52.2/52.3 (over 3 kilos lost) and I'm really happy with that figure. I'm actually not even really that sure I want to lose much more weight, maybe just another half kilo but I feel really good and healthy and I've dropped more than a dress size.

Ritienne Zammit's A/W 15 collection surprised me. I entered backstage expecting to see highly creative pieces that wouldn't be entirely wearable, that would be more of an artistic expression than anything else. I was pleasantly surprised - the creativity is still there but this collection is much more wearable, a lot cleaner than her previous work, a touch more refined and a touch more mature.
The collection is inspired by Maltese patriotism and poets, especially by Dun Mikiel Xerri a Maltese patriot who was involved in an unsuccessful revolt to overthrow French rule under Napoleon Bonaparte. He was captured and later executed. Other names made an appearance within the collection, namely Manwel Dimech and the national poet Dun Karm who wrote our National Anthem.
