Lucian Matis takes it to the max with his fall collection
Lucian Matis consistently puts out one of the most interesting collections of fashion week, but despite being a finalist on the first season of Project Runway Canada, his show on Thursday was quiet. There were a few notable guests—model Stacey McKenzie, who was a regular sight at the Allstream Centre, Ainsley Kerr and Monika Schnarre—but the crowd was nothing compared to the Pink Tartan and Joe Fresh Style shows the night before. The clothes were maximalist, with ballooning shoulders and hips, intricate beading, busy patterns and lace. The collection was a feast for the eyes; too bad more eyes weren’t there to see it.
