He’s the first designer to be trending on Twitter during MBFWA and looking at Toni Maticevski’s breathtaking Fall 2015 show, it’s easy to see why. Set against a beautiful patterned white wall, models took to the glossy white runway in a array of perfectly draped designs, delicately embellished gowns and bold modern tailoring.
The master of fabric manipulation, Maticevski once again challenged the concept of ready-to-wear by layering multiple textured materials, designed to compliment and enhance the female form. Feminine undertones were given a touch of grit, an underlying toughness Maticevski has become known for.
In a world first, Maticevski collaborated with Lenovo to stream his show live during the runway through custom black Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2’s. This fusion of fashion and technology was extended to the front row with guest gifted a personalised Lenovo tablet to capture their Maticevski and MBFWA moments.
After the success of last year’s collaboration, Maticevski also collaborated with Dinosaur Designs on a range of beautiful jewellery in pastel resins, reminiscent of orbiting planets, adding an almost space like feel to the collection.
When it comes to making an impact at fashion week, it’s hard to beat the sheer drama and intensity of a Maticevski runway. He once again showed why he’s one of the most respected and talented designers in Australia.
To go behind the scenes at the Maticevski show, stay tuned for our exclusive MBFWA webseries The Frow, launching 3 May.
