We are very pleased to announce that Maltese fashion designers Charles & Ron have recently been selected by an international jury as winners of the Mediterranean Fashion Prize. They were selected, together with 10 laureates, out of 60 finalists from 19 Mediterranean countries.
The event was organised by Maison Métiers de la Mode de Marseille (MMMM), and the organisation and MFP are supported by international fashion houses such as Longchamp, Chanel and Dior.
CEO of Dior, Mr. Sidney Toledano and Mr. Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Chanel’s Fashion Activities, are among the highly esteemed committee members. Since 2010, this competition has highlighted the creative Mediterranean fashion industry with two objectives – to help young brands gain access and get recognition in an international market, and to support emerging talent in the different development processes of the company.
Charles & Ron will be travelling to Marseille in May, where at the Villa Méditerranée, they will undergo an intensive program of meetings with experts, buyers and international media. The program will run from May till December 2015, and the designers will also have a chance to participate in the Mediterranean Biennial of Fashion in 2016.
Charles & Ron is a contemporary lifestyle brand of high-end wearable clothing and bags with a distinct Mediterranean flair and a dedication to superior quality. Maltese culture is an integral part of the Charles and Ron design ethic, and the brand’s vision is to inspire its clients to be part of the instantly recognisable Charles & Ron Mediterranean lifestyle.
Charles & Ron are supported by the Malta Tourism Authority.
