Bringing the heat big time

With constantly-changing fashion trends dominating every inch of media (seemingly now more than ever), it's great to see that Malta's designers are kicking things into overdrive for 2017. Here are six clothing brands—old and new—that are gearing up for what seems to be a great year:

1. Gabrielle

The self-taught experimental fashion designer has just released details on her new lookbook late last year, and the new year is looking very promising to Maltese fashion thanks to Gabrielle's made-to-order pieces.

2. DAZE

Urban clothing with a penchant for youthful energy and cheekiness, Daze is now three years old, but every year brings with it larger collections and cooler items. And with their New Year's Resolution being simply "Be more awesome than last year", we can expect great things from Daze in 2017.

3. Dying Heroes

Malta's newest clothing brand finally going public and gaining a lot of traction, we're very excited to see what's in store for Dying Heroes in 2017.

4. No 2 Authority

Originally a very limited, denim-inspired clothes-customising project under the name of Flowy Furby, Nick Attard's pet project has changed title and moved to Berlin. Welcoming collaborations, this has potential written all over it.

5. Parascandalo

Even though anyone even slightly interested in the Maltese fashion scene already probably knew of Parascandalo's cool outfits, the brand really shifted into overdrive last year after the Malta Fashion awards. The latest collection has already been constantly spotted on a lot of Maltese musicians and celebrity figures, and the snowball effect is only intensifying this year.

6. Luke Azzopardi

If you're looking for a beautiful, custom-made dress to satisfy your haute couture cravings, then you really need to look no further. With its latest sneak peaks, the Gozo-based luxury design house looks set to bring timeless elegance to 2017.

7. Charles & Ron

Still firmly looking like the undisputed kings of the Maltese fashion industry, Charles & Ron look like they're only speeding up for the year ahead. And if last year's runway show in front of the Birkirkara Parish Church is anything to go by, it's going to be another very good year.
