Ferramoda 2016 - La Moda e' Cultura

"Ferramoda 2016 - La Moda e' Cultura"


Ferramoda ~ the dual objective of the promotion of culture through fashion and the organisation of such events for a good cause.
The name Ferramoda follows the directors family name Ferrante, and her passion for fashion. Ferramoda was launched in 2006. It started emerging as a Made in Italy event, emphasizing on handmade products in order to protect, promote and encourage the work of designers who put their emotions in the creativity of a design to express fashion.It was the reflection of a culture which rode the world of fashion and due to the financial crisis was loosing its grip as the world was moving to faster machine made designs, which were cheaper. Ferramoda wanted to strive to keep this culture going- the appreciation of values which were going to get lost.

Ferramoda is also well known as being a charity event- a night of fashion and culture FOR A GOOD Cause. There are no sales or outlets, however all brands benefit from the
marketing, the attendance of all honored guests and the attention of all those present who also are there with the aim of giving a donation for the children’s homes of Malta.

A lot of entities took part in this event, with the Luxury Outlet being one of them. It is located in Sliema and harbours brands such as Gucci, Prada, Burberry, Versace and much more. It offers luxury brands at discounted prices! A showcase of such brands was presented to us after the initial presentation. Emilio Ricci's lastest collection was entitled My Natural Dream, which featured some beautiful outfits all encompassing the element of nature in them.The next show was a showcase of some beautiful pieces from Emilio Schuberth .Unfortunately, I had to leave quite early and I missed the show by Ferragiu. Below are some photos of the event itself:

The Autumn and Winter Fashion Show by DIZZ Group

This post is such a long overdue post. But last month was somewhat of a difficult one for me and this event totally escaped my mind. I thought of writing just a few words on what happened during the show. October is known for Breast Cancer Awareness month, however, it was also Mental Health Awareness month too. Me and Lara were invited to go to the Autumn Winter Fashion Show organised by the DIZZ group in aid of the Merigold Foundation, under the patronage of Ms. Michelle Muscat. The Fashion show took place at the magnificent Girgenti Palace in Siggiewi. 
Below are some of my favourite looks of the event. For more information on the Mental Health Awareness group please do visit this LINK. Also for more information on the DIZZ group visit their Facebook PAGE


XOXOXO
