TG: What is a Maticevski woman like?
TM: I find she is super reserved and elegant. A bit feisty and ambitious. A bit wicked and naughty but always a lady.
TG: What was the most influential movie of your youth and why?
TM: I loved The Piano. It was the music, the colours, the elements of darkness and beauty that I really associated with.
TG: If you were reincarnated as a woman in any era which one would you like to be and why?
TM: I would be a woman in the late forties and early fifties. I love the whole idea of dressing up. I love that things were so carefully orchestrated around the body and social situations. I love that dressing was an event in itself.
TG: If you had a magic wand which aspect of the fashion industry would you change?
TM: People who lie to your face.
TG: If you won a billion dollars in the lottery what would be the first 3 things you would do?
TM: I would close my business for a few months or years.Then re-build it from scratch with no hesitations or doubts. It would be utterly decadent and grotesque in how beautiful a world can be. Living in magic always.
