Rosemount Australian Fashion Week: Dion Lee Lives Up To the Hype

SYDNEY--After wowing the fashion world at his RAFW show last year, Dion Lee had a lot to live up to with his spring 2012 show Thursday morning in Sydney. The collection was entitled "Composure" and was just that: composed and self-contained, proving that Lee didn’t crack under the palpable pressure. His modern, architectural aesthetic was evident from the first look out--a perfectly structured three-dimensional gray mini-dress, and stayed present throughout. However there was also a softer element this year. Structured tailoring was contrasted with softly draped dresses, pleating and relaxed shapes. The sex appeal was quietly confident with short hems, high slits and sheerness playing against austere silhouettes.

SYDNEY--After wowing the fashion world at his RAFW show last year, Dion Lee had a lot to live up to with his spring 2012 show Thursday morning in Sydney.

The collection was entitled "Composure" and was just that: composed and self-contained, proving that Lee didn’t crack under the palpable pressure.

His modern, architectural aesthetic was evident from the first look out--a perfectly structured three-dimensional gray mini-dress, and stayed present throughout. However there was also a softer element this year. Structured tailoring was contrasted with softly draped dresses, pleating and relaxed shapes. The sex appeal was quietly confident with short hems, high slits and sheerness playing against austere silhouettes. The color palette was black, white, gray and peach with splashes of watermelon and aqua. The prints were abstract and geometric.

Dion Lee proves, without a doubt with this collection, that he is definitely one to keep your eye on.
