When Vogue editrix praises your work, there is little doubt that you are on the right path. For Australian fashion designer Dion Lee, his ascent to the top of the fashion world in Australia has been watched closely and he has yet to disappoint, generating a surge in Australian fashion apparel that is unparalleled in the history of the nation.

What Dion Lee is known for is his immaculate attention to detail, coupled with a preference for delving into experimental design that has resulted in fashion that is not only functional but inventive enough to wear anywhere. Lee’s collections often hinge on dichotomy: the traditional versus modernity, tailored versus flowy, understated versus bold and daring. All of these qualities are what have made him stand out from the crowd.

How prolific is Dion Lee in the world of fashion? Not even a year after being featured in the Australian Vogue in 2009, his creations were on the March 2010 cover. In quick succession, Lee has managed to rack up award after award – the International Woolmark Prize, the LMFF Designer Award, as well as the L’Oreal Fashion Festival Design Award. As a popular designer for the young urban professional, Dion Lee’s vision for modern clothes has led to him being labeled a trailblazer after each successive collection. It is obvious by his collections that he is always looking for something new and fresh. How things work and how to put something together are things that many women need to know.
