Dion Lee Fashion for Women
Dion Lee's midi dress is cut from fluid silk-satin in a rich merlot hue. This long-sleeved style has a flattering wrap-effect bodice, split skirt and wide band that accentuates a slim waist. The slit back calls for a self-adhesive bra.
Functionality and flattering fits are the driving forces behind Dion Lee’s designs. For AW17, the Australian design reconditions everyday knits with unexpected detailing, rendering them subversive. Spun to a fine gauge profile, this long sleeved jumper is a simple story from the front with a fitted silhouette and ribbed trims, but as its nickname, ‘Pinacle Balaclava’, suggests, when you put the hood up, its narrative is altogether different.Dion Lee knitted jumperSlips onHood, long sleeves, fine knit, fitted, cutout at back, ribbed trims63% viscose, 37% nylonHand washTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 29"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8

Designer Dion Lee is renowned for the meticulous construction of his clothing. Knitted from warm wool-blend, this sweater has tactile suede panels at the chest and shoulders. Wear yours with leather pants and white pumps.
Dion Lee's 'Balance' tunic is tailored from black crepe with a structured high-low hem - the geometric silhouette is inspired by glass windowpanes. This style has a classic square neckline and delicate straps that frame your shoulders. Wear it with flared pants and bold red sandals.
Dion Lee's skirt is part of the label's Pre-Fall '17 campaign, photographed on the streets of New York City. Made from fluid silk-satin, this wrap-effect design has a spliced midi hem and cargo-inspired patch pockets - subtle military details are seen throughout the collection. Echo the presentation's styling and pair yours with a slouchy sweater, or try it with a slinky camisole.
Dion Lee puts form and fit above all else when designing - it's the reason why this midi dress is so flattering. Made from plush merlot velvet, it has a curve-skimming shape that streamlines the silhouette and thin spaghetti straps that cross at the low-cut back. It's lined along the front and has an asymmetric high-low hem. Wear it to your next event with metallic sandals and a clutch.
Dion Lee's Resort '18 collection exudes a sense of ease through slouchy suiting and sportswear references. Made from fluid midnight-blue silk-satin, these wide-leg pants have ivory side stripes and draped ribbons for an undone feel. Show off the wrap-effect front with a tucked-in camisole.
This season's cold-shoulder trend is an elegant way to show some skin without being too revealing. Dion Lee's midi dress is made from plush velvet in a flattering wrap shape that draws attention to the slimmest part of your frame. Complement the dark navy color with black accessories.
Dion Lee was the first designer to show a collection outside Sydney Opera House as part of Australia Fashion Week. Part of the Pre-Fall '17 lineup, this ribbed-knit midi dress has a plunging V-neckline that's complete with halterneck-style tie fastenings. We love it with sleek heels and a clutch, but it also works with sneakers for a more casual look.
2010 was an iconic year for Dion Lee, marking him the first designer to stage a runway presentation beneath the hallowed halls of the iconic Sydney Opera House. Seven years on he returns to the landmark that put him on the map and pledges his inspiration to the organic construction of the building. That’s felt in the languid use of silk rendering the Bonded trousers, travelling a contrasting trim amid the drapery to a waist tie at the hip.Dion Lee silk satin trousersConcealed hook and eye and zip fastening at frontRelaxed fit, wide, mid rise, wrap over detail at front, contrasting strap at waist, slip pockets at sides, contrasting trims at sides, raw edges100% silkHand washTrue to sizeSize 8: Rise 14", inside leg 31", leg opening 18"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8

Australian brand Dion Lee showed its Resort '18 runway collection on the patio of the Sydney Opera House. Inspired by the warm colors and spirit of the venue at sunset, this sweater is woven from a textured paper and cotton-blend that's meant to mirror the grainy feel of a beach towel. Wrap the tie belt around twice to define your waist and temper the loose fit.

Dion Lee's fluid dress gives an answer to why we love velvet so much this season. Woven with silk in tones of navy and bright-blue, it's set on delicate black straps that outline the open back. Underpin yours with gel petals.
A boardroom ready button down may be intrinsic to our daily wardrobes, but there’s room for improvement when transitioning it out from under the desk to an after hours cocktail bar or two (ok three). Dion Lee’s architectural sensibility plays its part in the construction of this cotton shirt by stripping it from sleeves before turning them back in at the cuffs to form an aerodynamic wing like layered effect that’ll ensure to garner attention from every angle.Dion Lee cotton shirtExposed and concealed button fastening at frontBand collar, sleeveless, buttoned cuffs, all over stripes, curved yoke, pleats from centre front and back to buttoned cuffs, curved hem, dropped front hem100% cottonDry cleanTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 33"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8
