Lucian Matis Puts The Magic Into Fashion

One of our favorite collections for Toronto Fashion Week is the Lucian Matis fall collection. Matis, who is mostly known for being the runner up on Project Runway Canada, seems to be able to compete with the big wigs of the fashion industry. The collection has a wearable quality while at the same time, looks avant garde.

Lucian Matis uses gold, grey and black in this collection, with lots of pattern, lace and embellishemnt. The craftmanship and structure of these garments is amazing. Matis creates full hips and shoulders, without being bluky.

The inspiration for the collection goes back to Matis' Romanian heritage, with the textiled patterns and high neklines. Loving the incorporation of the silk leggings and elbow length gloves to create sleek lines amongst all the busy patterns and details.

We would love to get our hands one of these dresses!
