400 of Sydney’s celebrity and style set descended upon Sydney’s Ivy Ballroom on April 21 to witness a rare glimpse of limited edition pieces by Australian fashion maestro Toni Maticevski.
Bathed in pale peach light, lined with Jo Malone candles and filled with ambient and ethereal sounds, Sydney’s Ivy Ballroom was transformed as The Agrum Collection presented Toni Maticevski’s unseen masterpieces.
Actor Rachel Griffith, TV personality Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Sneaky Sound System’s Daimon Downey, stylist Pip Edwards, Olympian Michael Klim, model Sophie Ward and ‘It’ girl April-Rose Pengilly were just some of the notables in attendance.
The collection was comprised of standout pieces from past collections and private client commissions – “a selection of pieces that I’ve been working on for the past two years that never made it to the runway or weren’t right for the time,” said Maticevski.
Guests were greeted with Agrum cocktails in celebration of the official debut of Schweppes’ ‘Agrum Collection’ – a sophisticated line up of three exotic new flavours. The Citrus Blend, Blood Orange and White Grape & Passionfruit offer a splash of colour and refined taste perfect for mixing or enjoying on the rocks.
“Toni’s sophisticated work embodies our vision of stylish refreshment – from the vintage Schweppes ads of the early 20th century to the catwalks of today,” said Schweppes brand manager, Hanan Eissa.
