Editing issue 47’s ‘The Pygmalion Effect’ had taken me quite by surprise, as I was not accustomed to seeing others instigate performance by motivation, rather than by demotivation.
Malta has evolved very rapidly these last years. While many would argue that we have lost our quaintness and our naturalness, the truth is that quaintness is cute in a window and for a few gawping tourists but development is the only way forward. We now have become another type of show window - not for our “native” origins and barefoot antics but for talented, home-grown creations that a few years ago were not thought possible in our tiny island. Charles & Ron are one of our leading creatives who have managed to break into the world of fashion not just in Malta but also abroad. Victor Calleja met them to hear all about their success, their tribulations and their plans for the future.
