Dion Lee is a name that the fashion world must keep in the forefront of their stylish brains. With his Spring/Summer 2010-11 collection named “façade”,he is said to have saved the RAFW, which lacked of inspiration. The 24 year-old graduate of the Sydney Institute of Technology left his audience speechless, when he showed his third collection earlier this year at the Sydney Opera House during Rosemount Australian Fashion Week.
If you browse through his last collection, you can see that it was full of colors; from beautiful pastels and vivid blues to refreshing shades of lilac, ivory and violet. The intricate pleating and knotting details at his dresses made his collection beyond interesting, but what I loved the most was the cut-away blazers and the ink-blot digital print on some of the skirts and dresses. Despite of the young of his age, all his clothes were perfectly proportioned and exquisitely finished.
With the prestigious L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival’s (LMFF) Young Designer Award under his belt and his great craftsmanship his future seems brighter than any star !
