Toni Maticevski opened Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week tonight with his Resort 17 collection. Maree was there amongst the action to give us a preview look! Living Local are there all week to give you daily insight so we welcome you to keep watching this space.

Toni Maticevski launched his label in 1999, ever since he has retained a strong hands-on approach to his work, draping and sampling his designs himself. He balances the design of a successful ready-to-wear label alongside his bespoke practice catering to one off commissions. You will see a mix of high glamour and exacting technical know-how, coupled with restrained and sleek tailoring. He prefers to work on ideas that are creatively challenging and likely to push his designs further; Sculptural pieces inspired and supported by the outline of the body, which play with the seemingly contradictory ideas of structure and fluidity. With soft volumes in luxurious fabrications, his work creates and emphasises drama.
