FASHIONCLASH New Designer Competition at Runway Malta

Last weekend I was in Malta again and this time with FASHIONCLASH.
Runway Malta hand in hand with Valletta 2018 have put together a New Designer Competition to entice young designers.
Valletta 2018 is a project to enrich Malta´s cultural activities and enhance the many areas of art within the Maltese community. Becoming a candidate for the European Capital of Culture for 2018 has opened the door to Valletta´s cultural hub and has allowed for artistic relationships to be built between Malta and other European cities. Because of this, V18 and Runway Malta came up with a fantastic way to team up with another candidate city – Maastricht in the Netherlands – (Maastricht VIA2018) to give a Maltese designer an opportunity to show at the inaugural FASHIONCLASH Maastricht event held in June. Applications were open to any new designer in Malta to come up with three outfits using any material they like.

 ¨The Valletta 2018 Foundation is very happy to be collaborating on this fashion programme which enables an exciting exchange of ideas to take place between Malta and the Netherlands, both of which are hosting the candidate cities for the title of European Capital of Culture in 2018. We look forward to this being a success and establishing this type of shared project over the long term to make of it a sustainable means of collaboration.¨ Says Karsten Xuereb of V18. 

This collaboration with Runway Malta is supported by The Valletta 2018 Foundation and Maastricht & Euregio Meuse-Rhine 2018

From all of the applications received, FASHIONCLASH had to pick five finalists to show on the catwalk at Runway Malta. Then one winner is awarded with 'FCM2012 participation' : an all-expense paid trip to show their full collection at FASHIONCLASH Maastricht in June 2012.

FASHIONCLASH New Designer Competetion finalists are: Enrique Tabone, Ewa Nowacka, Geneva Corlett, Celeste by Martina Spiteri and Nicole Cushieri.

The winner is: Geneva Corlett!
