Renowned Australian designer 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 dexterous ability to morph, adapt and defy the perceived boundaries of fashion. In this major exhibition, selected objects will be presented to illustrate the evolution of Toni Maticevski’s oeuvre, exploring his early influences through to his inspiration and recurrent themes in his current practice. Maticevski has collaborated with institutions such as Phillip Adams Ballet Lab, 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 in Los Angeles (FIDM), and numerous private collections.
