1,500 guests attend Charles & Ron Los Angeles Fashion Week show

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.

'Every beginning has an end'; Jose Herrera and Evarist Bartolo address not being elected

Foreign Minister Evarist Bartolo and Culture Minister Jose’ Herrera have set their sights on new horizons after failing to get re-elected to Parliament this election.

On Monday, Bartolo posted a Facebook entry congratulating the newly-elected members of parliament and thanking those who showed their support during his 30 years of service. The respected politician stated that, now that he did not get elected, he looks forward to a ‘new season’ in his life.

Bartolo first entered the parliamentary fray after being elected in 2017. Back in 2017, he was elected from the 10th and 12th districts, serving as a minister under Alfred Sant, Joseph Muscat and Robert Abela during his tenure.

Meanwhile, Culture Minister Jose’ Herrera also took to Facebook to thank his followers and supporters for years of trust & support during his six legislatures. Herrera revealed that after 26 years of service as a parliamentary member, it is now time to retire from the political scene.

The non-election of these two senior politicians and others from both ends of the political spectrum made way for a number of new faces in Parliament.

What do you make of this?
