Tailored, sensual, refined, fragile and extravagant pieces floated down the runway in this one of only 2 red carpet runway shows for the whole week (the other being Alex Perry). Some more photos of the beautiful gowns can be found on the LMFF website.
Quite a few of you have mentioned that he was your favourite of all the photos I included in the previous posts here and here - so consider this just the cherry on top.
Working from a nondescript building in a less than glamourous area of Melbourne (picture industrial factories and semi-trailers rolling past on the street), upon entry to the premises you are transported to a buzzing creative studio. Here is a great interview with Toni which was posted on Melbourne's Broadsheet site here.
I must say also, he's just as refined in person as his beautiful garments - as we were seated opposite him at one of the shows last week and I consider him a quiet achiever, not unlike Tom Ford where Tom discusses his method '...do it first, then talk about it...' in this film recently featured over at LatteLisa. Oh and funnily enough, about 5 years ago, I was designing some bridesmaids dresses for a client that actually had her wedding gown designed by Toni Maticevski and I remember the photos she sent me afterwards were stunning. (Of course the bridesmaids were just as gorgeous if I do say so!)
