Designer Lucian Matis unveiled his latest collection for World MasterCard Fashion Week at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel on Monday.
Dark, sexy and rich is how I would describe Matis’ Fall/Winter 2012 “asymmetry of nature” collection at Toronto Fashion Week.
The detailing on each and every piece was so intricate and fantastic; the lace macramé was all done by hand. Matis also added rich feathers in this dramatic, gothic-like collection.
You can’t help but be wowed by the hand-detailed elements and appreciate the time involved in creating this incredible collection.
“One of the collections, it’s very couture. I wouldn’t call myself a couturier because I’m not but it’s all hand done, it’s very organic, it’s very labour intensive,” says Matis in Monday’s edition of The Morning Show.
But it seems very couture and fabulous! The collection shows Matis’ skill and innovation, making him Canada’s fashion darling. I met him at the Genie Awards and thought he was such a sweetheart.
The Romanian-born Toronto-based designer was a finalist on Project Runway Canada’s first season.
