Australian designer Toni Maticevski is known for pretty feminine designs, but lately the designs have taken on a harder "look at me" edge. For Fall of 2010, Maticevski's designs seem inspired by both a Middle Eastern harem and the flappers of the Roaring Twenties. Maticevski sent a number of black dresses down the runway that featured see-through bras and drunken lace. All the garments were constructed in luxurious fabrics and accented with glitzy embellishments. Of particular note was the dress with both should straps strung on the left shoulder.

There were also what might be described as classic white evening dresses. But with the exception of one strapless number, they were all deconstructed and reinterpreted in the spirit of slouchy chic. Think Zelda Fitzgerald in her New York Years.
