The Lucian Matis Fall 2012 is a series of elegant ball gowns and frocks. The series favors a nude underlay with black lace layering, reminiscent of rebellious 1920s apparel. The voluminous silhouette of the pieces create a queen-like stature, with a victorian twist. The slightly dark pieces are highly romantic and elegant. Memorable pieces include an oversized feathered shawl, crafted from slightly metallic blue feathers with yellow detailing. Also memorable is the royal blue ball gown with immense amounts of embroidery and spectacular detailing.
Lucian Matis studied painting and graphics at Sibiu Art Institute in Transylvania before moving to Canada to study fashion design at Ryerson University. He has received several awards for his work and was featured on Canada's Next Top Model and Project Runway Canada.
The Lucian Matis Fall 2012 collection debuted at The Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.
