Highlight of Australian Fashion Week: Dion Lee

The highlight of Rosemount Australian Fashion Week was without a doubt Dion Lee, who for the second year in a row stunned audiences with inspired designs. This year the designer created printed shift dresses,with doted cut-outs and slashes, and using a romantic palette of pale pinks and blushing violets. The rest of the collection consisted of masculine back and white tailoring, which provided a stark contrast to the romance of the dresses.

The construction of the garments were as artful as the printed patterns, creating exotic, futuristic silhouettes. The overall look, especially the dresses, reminded me of Peter Pilotto's Spring/Summer collection, and also Basso & Brooke's digital printed dresses, as seen at their Autumn/Winter collection recently. It was fresh, vibrant and eye-catching, and as the fresh-faced models showed off the pretty prints and masterfully designed tailoring, it was clear that Dion Lee was proving himself to be another one of a younger generation of excellent designers, and he managed to encapsulate what Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang have also managed to capture recently -  a youthful fashion revival.

Check out the stand-out pieces of Dion Lee's collection below.
