Australian designer Toni Maticevski tends to fly under the radar – possibly due to where he is based – but his Spring 2010 collection was full of red carpet ready stunning pieces.
The designer was inspired by “a dark and beautiful place where things die and are born again.” Which perfectly describes his haunting beautiful pieces.
I’m surprised fashion-forward celebs like Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Connelly haven’t worn his designs on the red carpet already, but hopefully this collection will grab the attention of those major stars.
Maticevski presented pencil skirts and architectural gowns festooned with layer upon layer of tulle and organza flowers.
Some of you say that people like Charlize Theron could wear a trash bag and still look amazing, well Maticevski has given those perfect stars that very challenge by creating gowns that appears to be made out of bin liners.
Along with the tulle and organza he used interesting splatter paint prints, ruffles, and lace. It was all very romantic, like he was seducing us with each look.
The dresses were stunning, but the shoes were outstanding with diamante and rosette details placed on the heel.
Angelina Jolie this collection has your name written all over it.

You may remember Abbie Cornish wore one of his gowns to Cannes Film Festival recently.
