“Nolcha shows are the perfect partner for us to show our collections during New York Fashion week, and after the incredible feedback and publicity of last two season’s runway shows it was a natural progression to also be part of the Nolcha Fashion Lounge this season. We are very excited and can’t wait to show you the new Charles & Ron Leather Bag collection!”

 

Background
Charles, born in Malta and Ron originally Dutch met in Amsterdam in 1992. Shortly after they met Ron moved to Malta where they set up their first studio and launched their first collection. The mostly self-taught designers are Malta’s leading fashion house and have participated in many prestigious fashion events throughout Europe. Charles & Ron were also guest designers at Toronto Fashion Week.

 

The designers started to design bags to compliment their ready to wear collections a couple of seasons back and the stylish hand made bags soon gained popularity and have become an important part of the Charles & Ron range.

 

The bags are hand made in Malta and the designers select the finest Italian leathers for the dynamic range of bags. Most styles are named after close friends and models who have been an inspiration to Charles & Ron. Selected boutiques in the U.S are already stocking the super stylish and feminine range.

 

The C&R collections have been gaining lots of global interest and the designers have recently won the Mediterranean Fashion Prize.  They were selected together with 10 laureates out of 60 finalists from 19 Mediterranean countries. The event is organised by Maison Metiers de la Mode de Marseille (MMMM). The organisation and MFP is supported by international fashion houses like Longchamp , Chanel and Dior.
