If you live in Victoria and are looking for something to do, we suggest gathering a few friends and taking a roadtrip to Bendigo to see the incredible exhibition of Melbourne-based Myer designer, Toni Maticevski.
Toni Maticevski has achieved international acclaim for his masterful approach to the manipulation of traditional fashion silhouettes and innovative use of materials and fabrics. His unique skill in dressing the female form and his collaborations with the performing arts speak to his amazing ability to morph, adapt and defy the perceived boundaries of fashion.
Maticevski has collaborated with institutions such as Phillip Adams BalletLab, designing costumes for two productions, Miracle (2009) and Aviary (2011) for which he won a Helpmann Award (with milliner Richard Nylon). He contributed to campaigns for The Australian Ballet (2009) and in 2013 he was selected for the National Gallery of Victoria’s ambitious exhibition Melbourne Now. Other collaborations include Dinosaur Designs, Sydney Dance Company, and Autore South Sea Pearls. He is represented in the collections of the National Gallery of Victoria, Powerhouse Museum Sydney and the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles (FIDM), and numerous private collections.
