Maltese fashion brand Charles & Ron showcased their Spring/Summer 2016 collection at the Nolcha Shows at Pier 59 during New York Fashion Week.

This season the Malta Tourism Authority, the tourism industry’s regulator and motivator, joined forces with Charles & Ron to support their work in the American market.


Charles & Ron are in love, in love with the Mediterranean and in love with their Maltese heritage. Their Spring/Summer 2016 collection is a vibrant and colorful collection of graphic prints inspired by the traditional Maltese fishing boat called “ Luzzu “. Sky blue and Buttercup Yellow in color block patterns and stripes, silk satin and viscose crepe dresses in super feminine cuts paired with Charles & Ron hand crafted leather bags brought a Maltese flair to the Nolcha Shows runway.


“We had an amazing experience at this year’s fashion lounge. The collaboration between a fashion house and a destination was very well received and was a natural partnership when it comes to Charles & Ron and Malta.” Shares Michelle Buttigieg, Malta Tourism Authority representative. “Thank you Kerry Bannigan and team at the Nolcha Shows. Charles & Ron’s Spring/Summer 2016 Collection is a class act. This year’s depiction of the Maltese “Luzzu” was simply genius.”


Also seen on the Charles & Ron runway is a mysterious “Evil Eye” thought to fight of the bad spirits when the ‘Luzzu” is at sea and will also watch over the Charles & Ron woman for Spring/Summer 2016.


Kerry Bannigan comments: “I am thrilled to watch the growth of Charles & Ron and to play an integral role of their brand expansion into the USA market.  The brand is going from strength to strength with their designs, creative vision and supporting network. Having the support of the Malta Tourism Authority adds to the backbone of their international brand network.”
