Valerie: Hi, I’m Valerie Elizabeth with society stylist with Style Coalition here at the Toni Maticevski Show. Okay. How was everything about your new collection, your club, your inspiration?
Toni: Well, it all came around so quickly. I had literally three weeks to get it all done. So, I was kind of stuck at the sewing machine and just powering through the whole thing.
Valerie: Do you do own samples?
Toni: Yes, kind of.
Valerie: That’s great because that’s an amazing talent to have. You have such a beautiful collection. Where do you get and where are the silhouettes from and the different fabrics that you use?
Toni: All it's kind of-it's really organic like, I try not to think about it too much. It just sort of happens. It's like, okay, I got a feeling for something and I just sort of go with the flow.
Valerie: And do you have a specific woman that you design for?
Toni: No, I mean I love the idea that women of all sorts can find something. I think it is show limit yourself to one sort of woman like. Women are so dimensional these days.
Valerie: That’s a good answer. It's not when you think about her bag, your footwear.
Toni: Yes, of course. Thank you.
Valerie: Okay, tell us about your favorites here and where you started your inspiration with the footwear.
Toni: I kind of happened by accident, we we’re sorting materials and stuff, and under assuming pictures or like, so what are you doing and like what are you feeling? I don’t know and I just sew like a spur on a boot. And I went cowboy. And I just went from there to change to crazy like-you know—things that look like crazy spurs and stuff. We should have developed this thing like plastering the shoes and painting stuff so that they’ll crackle and peel off.
Toni: Yes, it's sort of how I play on.
Valerie: Do you have a piece in this collection that you feel like a woman should buy this and keep it forever?
Toni: I don’t know. There are some other really simple tailored pieces. I think I can kind of go from right now until like 10 years, I hope.
Valerie: And do you have a celebrity you’ve love to see in your look?
Toni: Let's get Usher and I can't never think of anyone that wears that. I don’t know. I’m kind of open to anyone who just really gets something from it.
Valerie: Well, your dresses are just beautiful and they would be all perfect to others?
Toni: Thank you.
Valerie: Especially, with this shoes.
Toni: I hope so.
Valerie: Thank you so much for having you with us today.
