Hot new designer: Dion Lee

March 18, 2010

Young fashion design wizard Dion Lee has won the L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion
Festival Designer Award presented by Woolmark, supported by Vogue.

With impeccably cut womenswear and an emerging global following, Dion Lee
has reinforced his position as Australia’s newest rising fashion star.

At only 24 and with just four finished collections to his fast growing
reputation, the Sydney based designer will receive assistance from Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) to reach new heights.

‘It was an extremely difficult decision to make given the abundance of
talent and innovation shown. Dion Lee demonstrates a unique balance of
precision tailoring and an design ingenuity. He has the potential to be
Australia’s biggest design export,’ L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival
Director, Karen Webster said.

Sounds like Dion Lee is a name to look out for!
