Dion Lee

After getting my daily dose of Jack & Jill's blog last weekend, I found myself drooling over this delightful collection by australian designer Dion Lee. Drooling is an understatement when you see these beautifully constructed pieces (I'm not lying!).
So I've decided to compile some pictures of his recent SS 2010/11 collection, for you to meet this australian fashion genius.

Who's Dion Lee?
After unveiling his debut collection at RAFW, Dion Lee proved himself as a new designer to emerge from the Australian fashion industry.
The 22-year-old Sydney-based designer graduated from Fashion Design Studio, Sydney Institute of Technology in early 2007 and has already secured himself some stellar stockists to start selling his wares.
Inspired by the construction of clothing, the Lee's work focuses primarily on innovative cut and pattern making. Often woven and intertwined, the young designer utilises structured and fluid tailoring, transparency and opacity and functional detailing to create a modern balance of innovation and wearability.
Dion Lee's Spring/Summer 2008 collection was inspired by the functions of the human body, specifically the concept of mitosis. Using cell division to inform the construction of his designs, layers divide and separate in two, creating graphic, cell-like shapes and functions.
A relative newcomer on the local fashion scene, Lee already holds impressive credentials, having gained industry experience working with Tina Kalivas, and has acquired a host of awards including the 2007 Crosier Eveningwear Award. Watch this space!
