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!

We'd also like to give a special shout-out to Allison Clayton Art for crafting bespoke hand-painted swing tags for the event. Allison works to use art as a healing mechanism, escaping from today's fast paced society - definitely Miss Matahari approved! And as a special treat, we will be adorning many of our first orders with these gorgeous tags. Be lucky! 

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!

Fashion has always reflected the times. Whilst a ‘non-essential’ business, people will always need to wear clothes and whilst clothes don’t define us, they certainly reflect how we feel or how we want to. Sometimes the simple act of putting on a favourite dress, or amazing-fitting jeans or those to-die-for shoes that are totally impractical but make you feel like a million dollars, can lift our mood, increase our confidence and therefore change our entire outlook. Fashion is also creativity. Like art, music, literature. Fashion is an expression - of the designer, of the culture, of the times. Some of history’s greatest icons and legends are remembered just as much for their outfits as their talents. But right now fashion is the last thing people are buying. Retail stores have closed and many people are in lockdown. Online shopping is still for the most part available, but with so much uncertainly, how many of us are actually buying? As a fashion brand these are uncharted waters. How do we navigate through this and come out the other side, without sinking? It’s a question most of us are now asking.

I know it feels like we’ve entered the Zombie apocalypse, and in a way we have – except we’re fighting against a virus and not the living dead. Every day something changes. It was less than a week ago when life where I am was pretty much carrying on ‘as normal’ but at this point there is NO GUARANTEE for anything anymore. Countries are closed. Supermarkets shelves are empty and people are in quarantine. But what if this isn't the end, but in fact an opportunity for something new? Something better?

As a brand we always look to shed light onto inspirational women. Women who regardless of the challenges and obstacles life has cast their way, have always found ways to overcome them, circumvent them or just plain bulldoze through them, in pursuit of their goals and dreams.

For International Women’s Day I want to shed light onto a talented, and determined young woman from Uganda. Idah Nandyose (Nandy for short), is a 24 year old fashion designer and tailor. She contacted the brand as she wanted to share her story, in the hope that someone, somewhere, might read it and help.

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 and we'll be more than happy to discuss your specific requirements.
