In a sparkling night of nights, our very own master of design opens Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.
In a world defined by virtual realities, Maticevski's Resort 2017 collection presents a woman unafraid of fighting back against the facades around her to reveal unlimited dimensions of truth. This clarity is reflected through airy volume that defies gravity achieved by washed cotton lightness, micro-bonded pleats, mastered drapery and sweeping gowns. Perhaps taking cue from the recent Met gala's theme, Maticevski's black onyx beads reveal a Gothic influence against contrasting feminine pencil skirts while twisted chain-mail draped into knots fall against a warm knitted texture. These textures and silhouettes both man-made and machine generated, reveal at times the jarring beauty of her enigmatic world. Truly an awe-inspiring start to Australian Fashion Week!
