Charles Van Maarschalkerweerd Borg, one half of local fashion designers Charles & Ron, took to Facebook to reveal that over 1,500 guests attended their LA Fashion Week show on Sunday.
He thanked all the ‘stylists, fans and guests who filled up the super long runway spread over 2 halls. A big thank you to Charles & Ron team for making this happen, especially Marian Gofre.’
Ron also took to social media to thank all of Los Angeles for the fabulous week. ‘It was amazing to be able to travel and visit you again.’ The show debuted their new collection for fall/winter 2022/23 ‘Cynosure.’
The inspiration for the collation came from Valletta situated 16th century palace Casa Rocca Piccola. The designers wanted to capture what it means to do the extraordinary when least expected.
They dedicated the collection to their team of seamstresses in Malta and Ukraine, among them Gofre who is the head of design. ‘Cynosure is a message of beauty, love and peace’ wrote the artists.
Among the models was TikTok and makeup artist Henry Galea. Henry moved to Los Angeles to chase his dream and has been collaborating with international artists ever since.
