What makes Malta irresistible to you?
What doesn’t? I dare say that for everyone who has spent at least a few days there. I have traveled a lot, I have seen many spectacular places, but Malta has a little bit of everything. The impressive architecture, an incredible natural beauty, people who are always smiling, I’d tell you about the food, too, if only I had enough words to describe it. An incredible atmosphere every evening, weather like a summer’s dream, with something retro in the air, a balance between the old and the new, between tradition and modernism, and I could go on until you buy some plane tickets and see for yourselves.
How did MURMUR impact your holiday?
That’s a good question. MURMUR managed to turn heads, and even to start conversation with people who were curious and who stopped to admire the outfits I wore during my photo sessions, or with people in the industry who I worked with on the projects that I did there. But the moment that really stood with me was one morning, during breakfast, when I chose to wear the white Ivy Skirt, and as soon as I stepped into the room, I felt all eyes were on me. It was like moving in slow motion.
A thing (or more) that you discovered in Malta and that you associate with the MURMUR woman.
Because a picture is worth a thousand words, this is how I envisage the MURMUR woman in Malta:
The boldest thing you did this summer.
After more than 10 years of working in the backstage of Feeric Fashion Week, where I coordinate the activity of over 150 people from all around the world, I dared to come out from behind the curtain, to enjoy the results of my work together with the guests and to watch every fashion show that I organized with my #feericteam.
2 guilty pleasures of yours that are only satisfied by traveling
Food and food. Hahah. When I visit new places, I look for the perfect culinary experience. If there’s a Michelin restaurant around, I give in to that temptation, and everywhere I go I look for traditional foods, as long as they don’t include meat.
Another guilty pleasure of mine is hunting for handmade, artisanal objects, things that belong to a certain place.
