“Melbourne influencer Rozalia Russian’s Instagram feed is a lesson in glamour. Street with a haute spin, Russian is unapologetic in her pursuit of being fabulous, forever with a sense of daring. Even when touting a tracksuit (her own Apparel by Rozalia, for example), she remains impeccable in her presentation, perfectly coiffed yet effortlessly cool all the same.”

STYLING NOTES – ELLIOT GARNAUT

“I’ve always been very vocal in my support of Australian designers,” says Elliot Garnaut. “I firmly believe that our home grown talent is paramount in setting the tone for what the global A-List are wearing both on and off the red carpet and my dear friend Toni Maticevski is no exception.

Coveted by J’Lo, Penelope Cruz and Rita Ora to name but a few, Toni has become a true icon of Australian style. What his garments do to a woman’s body is something of folklore. Every design tells a story. Each piece turns a woman into a modern heroine. Each outfit is a celebration of the female form.

I wanted to celebrate this strength from home with Rozalia Russian. In many ways she encompasses the Maticevski woman. Bold, striking, confident yet embodies a softness. Similarly, Toni’s FW20 collection screams this from the rooftops. It is my personal favourite to date.

I chose two pieces from FW20 that I see as the light and dark of the collection. The first, a sexy LBD. A perfect fit for Rozalia. Then, in contrast an ethereal tulle moment. Not only do these represent the diversity of Maticevski but also the diversity of Rozalia.

My advice? Don’t shy away from something having never tried it before. If you’re normally the sexy girl, embrace something a little softer this season. And visa versa. We’ve all got a little light and dark in us.”
