Designer: Dion Lee
Show: Hawaiian Airlines presents: Runway to Runway Fashion Show
After graduating from the Sydney Institute of Technology, Dion Lee made his debut at Australian Fashion Week in 2009 at age 23. In 2010, he made waves when he became the first designer to hold a runway show at the Sydney Opera House, a move that gained him national and international recognition. After years of national success, Lee moved to expand his brand globally and showcased his collection at both London Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week in 2012. Renowned for experimental construction combined with traditional tailoring, the brand has pioneered a modern identity for Australian fashion. Lee's hallmark ultra-precise tailoring, body-conscious sensuality and futuristic sophistication have won him fans across the world. Now with a second home base in New York, Lee is a regular participant in New York Fashion Week and his designs continue to garner strong support from fashion authorities Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Elle Magazine.
