50 years of Monsoon - 25 years in Malta

Saturday, 3 June 2023, 09:28 Last update: about 2 years ago

Our story began in 1973....fast forward to 2023 and Monsoon is celebrating 50 free-spirited years in fashion, and 25 years of Monsoon in Malta!

This was a real reason to celebrate!  So we did it in style....Monsoon customers were treated to Prosecco and cupcakes at our Swatar store on Thursday 27thand Saturday 29th April whilst viewing a collection that is colourful, directional, detailed and unique.  On display was the exclusive 'Originals' birthday capsule collection, made up of dresses designed from the archives especially for the occasion, with an emphasis on artisanal embroidery.  Also available to view was the collection created in collaboration with the London College of Fashion, which featured superbly designed dresses and separates.  Customers participated in a lucky dip and won fabulous prizes on the days of the event and a great time was had by all, including our bloggers who joined in the celebration.

Since day one, Monsoon has supported craft communities across Asia.  In 1994 the Monsoon-Accessorize Trust was established to further support a range of women's and children's education, health and humanitarian projects across the globe.  We are also well-known for having our eye on sustainability long before it was ever talked about, and we continue to focus on sourcing sustainable fabrics for our products and ensuring fair working conditions for the workers who make our clothes.  So when you own a Monsoon piece, you can be happy in the knowledge that you are doing your bit towards creating a cleaner, better and more sustainable planet for us all.

In Malta, we donated a percentage of our online salesto FIDEM Foundation, an NGO that helps adolescent girls and women reach their goals by supporting their education and well-being, a cause that is close to our hearts and in keeping with the Monsoon-Accessorize Trust's vision and objectives.

Sabine and her team joined us at our store in Swatar to receive the donation, and we all had a bit of fun trying on some of the fabulous pieces of the collection.

 

Thank you to all who celebrated with us, and here's to 50 more!
