Form fitting leather dresses, clean white blouses paired with classic a-line skirts and glittery ensembles. This is what Maria Lazarova Manceva displays in her latest LAZAR Couture Inc. collection, shown at Fashion Art Toronto 2014. The designer boldly combines an edgy rock style with classic timeless elegance.

“My design is for a woman who is strong, modern, intelligent, free, energetic and proud; she is mature and mysterious. Colour has the power to make her be beautiful on the outside, to feel beautiful on the inside,” says Manceva.

LAZAR Couture designs, made entirely in Canada, are inspired by modern femininity with grace and integrity with the aim to become classics in a modern day career women’s wardrobe. The look is supplemented and enriched with unique handmade jewelry design especially for this collection.
