I met Donna Benton, the founder of the Entertainer, bright and early at 7.30 am on a Wednesday morning in the lobby of the Meridien Hotel. Her team looks just as tired as I feel. After all, there was the fabulous ‘Entertainer in Malta’ launch party the night before and they had actually just flown in that day from Dubai.

The International Night at Malta Fashion Week showcased some wonderful designers from Serbia, London, Paris, Cyprus and Nigeria but our only local representation GAGLIARDI deserve their own post.
What Sam Borg and his team have done with the brand is quite remarkable. From the long-established company BORTEX, synonymous with well-tailored, good quality office wear and suits, he has launched a brand that produces tailored, fashionable, creative, menswear that is loved and worn by most men in Malta is now also gaining traction abroad.

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.

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.
