Summary: Toni Maticevski was inspired by "a dark and beautiful place
where things die and are born again". He accomplished this light/dark
dynamic through the use of burnt tulle flowers, paint splash prints,
curling vine details and sparkling crystal hairpins, along with a
somber palette of mostly black, white and gray. The silhouette was
layered: stretch tube skirts and body-tight tees covered by chiffon
overlays or satin bustiers, often decorated with exploding tulle
flowers as a bustle, on the shoulder or at the waist. The effect was
somewhat haunted: dressed-up painted dolls unraveling in the breeze.
