After a much anticipated wait, and a big move across the pond, we decided to pre-launch The New Frontier Collection at The Stylist Suite, during the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival® and Toronto Fashion Week.
From September 4-8, 300 celebrities, stylists, media and influencers were invited to attend Canada's exclusive fashion showroom showcasing the latest collections from some of Canada's most notable designers, including Hendrixroe, Lesley Hampton and now, Miss Matahari. The opening night saw a glamorous evening of fashion, style and of course, plenty of bubbles! #chichappens
From this year's roster of celebrities, we were very honored to have some of Canada's most esteemed actresses wearing our designs on the red carpet. Natasha Negonvalis wowed onlookers with her unique red carpet choice, totally rocking our WILD HEART catsuit (coming out later this year!)
The beautiful Emila McCarthy turned plenty of heads in our CLEMENTINE midi dress, whilst Naomi Snieckus made a stylish statement by teaming the TOMOE sleeves with her red carpet gown - simply divine! Our Founder also attended looking red carpet ready in the ever so stylish JESSE fringe dress.
We also donated a few of our accessories to the exciting VIP gifting lounge. Kick-ass Wynonna Earp actress, Melanie Scrofano received our RISING SUN feather n' fringe waist belt, whilst Supergirl and Heartland's Eliana Jones was gifted the SHADOW fringe choker - two stunning pieces for two stunning stars!
Last but not least, we'd like to extend a very big thank you to Gail McInnes and Christian Dare for hosting such a special event. Hope to see you again next year!
The Miss Matahari team Xx

In many parts of the world there's a huge stigma associated with menstruation, and young women are being subjected to shame, guilt and even bullying as a result. A fashion designer from Uganda has begun a campaign to educate women in her local area about menstrual hygiene and body positivity, whilst teaching them the necessary skill set to make their own sanitary products, and thereby changing their lives.
As the world slowly starts to emerge out of its pyjama/blanket clad cocoon, I wonder what we can take away from this unprecedented experience of Covid 19. What have we learnt? What will we miss? And what will we want to change moving forwards?
This global pandemic has affected so many people in negative ways, but still, somewhere amid the fear and uncertainty we have also seen hope, and the potential for a better and braver new world.
Size Guide information - best viewed in landscape mode/on a larger screen.
The models in The Warrior Collection range from 5'5" - 5'9" in height and size 4-6 US (8-10 UK). They are all wearing our size S.
The main model in The New Frontier Collection is 5' 10" and a US size 2-4 (6-8 UK). Her bust is 34", waist 26" and hips 36.5". She is also wearing our size S. The petite model wearing some of the styles and accessories is 5' 3" and a US size 2. Her bust is 33", waist 25" and hips 39". She is wearing our size XS. If you fall into the petite category, you might find XS fits you better length-wise.
Note on pants - The workout tights/capris in The Warrior collection fit a little larger than pants/leggings in The New Frontier collection, as they've been specifically designed to flatter all body types, with a slightly more generous cut on the thighs and around the waist. If you have very slim thighs, we recommend you go down a size in any of the Warrior collection bottoms. In general all of our pants are designed to accommodate curvy or muscular thighs. When in doubt, drop a size.
We've also created all styles across all collections to fit a little longer on the sleeves and legs to provide more allowance for different shapes and sizes; not to mention we love the longer sleeved/legged look.
If you have any queries on sizing, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be more than happy to discuss your specific requirements.
