MATICEVSKI has become a Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia highlight over recent years – and 2015 was no exception. Designer Toni Maticevski presented his highly anticipated collection to a full house, attracting global VIPs, local and international press and buyers along with a strong front row celebrity attendance including Nicole Trunfio, Rachael Finch, Lindy Klim, Jessica Mauboy, Gemma Ward and Miroslava Duma.
The MATICEVSKI Fall 2015 preview boasted a stark white, acrylic runway spanning 30m long and 9m wide. Backed by a graphic, geometric white wall spanning 6m high, sound bites of atmospheric sounds reflecting a speed shutter of memories and nostalgia played over a overwhelming set which featured a hand-picked selection of top models who unveiled thirty-four looks which moved gracefully with the body via skillfully tailored tucks and pleats.
Jayne Wild for GHD created sleek hair to compliment the voluminous designs seen throughout the collection. The hair styling played on the idea of bringing in elements of technical moulding and working with artificial fibre against a natural beauty. Hence the bun encased latex layers, which twist and contort against the finely polished hair.
Nigel Stanislaus for MAYBELLINE, celebrated natural beauty enhancing the tone, skin texture and complexion of every girl. Instead of covering up the face each look was customised to the individual girl’s skin tone, texture and face shape ensuring a clean and refined look.
Similarly, Dinosaur Designs teamed up with MATICEVSKI creating custom jewellery created with spherical forms at the forefront. Contrasting delicate light-coloured spheres paired with a mix of precious metals enhanced the way the spheres captured light against the wearer’s skin and clothes.
Maticevski’s collection of Asylum-clean whites pave the way for dispersion into nostalgic florals and playful polka dots allowing a woman to gracefully fall into a deep, dark sky – a sky that greets the ocean on a horizon of arctic blue.
