Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Malta and Fashion Awards has the aim of rewarding the talent working in Malta’s fashion industry
The next edition of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Malta will take place from 9th – 16th May 2015.
The Mercedes-Benz Malta Fashion Week is the brainchild of Adrian J. Mizzi who has been organising The Malta Fashion Awards for more than a decade. During this time The Awards have become a catalyst for an industry that has developed and evolved and now celebrates this success during the Malta Fashion Week.
Malta National Fashion Awards was founded in 1997 with the aim of rewarding the abundant talent working in Malta’s fashion industry. Over the years the scope of this event has expanded to include related areas of creativity and well being.
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 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 16th 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 from the finalists of The Wella Trend Vision Awards, a gathering of fashion shows held during the whole week, plus international designers from various countries.
Foreign media including the worldwide fashion television channel FTV are expected to cover the event on an international scale.
