Looking for something new & Dandi

Jewelry Designer Dandi Maestre's new collection

Jewelry Designer Dandi Maestre's new collection

Today I’m dropping by the opening of the One-of-a-Kind show in Toronto. I haven’t been to this show in several years and I have a special reason to go this time: I’m going to be meeting Dandi Maestre, the exotic jewelry designer who’s recent work accessorized Lucian Matis’ fall/winter 09 collection at LG Fashion Week.

Dandi Maestre works with natural materials- horns, shells, and reclaimed wood to create unique pieces that make a strong fashion and ecological statement. I’m curious to see what Dandi is offering for sale at the very commercial One of a Kind Show; her taste and flair seem to be bolder than the mild crowd-pleasers that typically fill up booths at these types of events.

I also want to learn about how she and Lucian Matis produced the ethereal spectacle that walked the runway just two weeks ago and what she’s working on now. Her current collection is clearly tribal-inspired and I’m anxious to ask her how she sees tribal aesthetics in the current and future fashion landscape.

Tomorrow: One of a Kind Show highlights.

Watch the Lucian Matis FW09 Collection video featuring Dandi’s work and read about the collection here.
