Gorgeous dresses and hot new designs at affordable prices by Jason Matlo

Gorgeous dresses and hot new designs are not always something that the average girl has access to. Fashionable pieces are often left out of the closets of the working class due to the high price tag, but that isn't always the case. This season, one of Vancouver's hometown favorites, Jason Matlo, ditched these inflated prices in favor of a more attainable line for the girl who wants it all but also wants to hold on to some of her hard-earned dollars.

“Babe” is the new line by Matlo and the price is no deterrent to the genius of his designs. Opulent fabrics, flattering styles and fashionably simple styles are the highlights of this affordable collection. Pieces from Matlo's ready-to-wear line will typically cost $600-$3000 but the “Babe” line runs from $200-$500 for amazing pieces suitable for the red carpet or simply for a night in town. Matlo's talent and eye for the most current styles and looks ladies love are how he has risen to the top, and now he’s giving back to his loyal clienteles by allowing a new chic point of view without emptying the pocketbooks. Check out the “Babe” line for Spring/Summer ’10, which is available now, and for Fall/Winter ’10, which will be in stores late August.

Matlo's pieces can be found in Vancouver at the “Lola Home and Apparel” in Yaletown.
