Dion Lee has evolved as a designer, from his debut collection in Spring 2011 featuring ink blot prints, cut out dresses and blazers and pleated drapery, heavily littered with mauve and sky blue to his now very mature-looking experimentation with clean and modern neutrals, elegant cut-outs, and sheer and opaque contrasts. Lee seems to be joining a minimalist trend once started by Phoebe Philo for Céline and now taken up by many in the industry when they need a creative clear-out. It looks as though Dion Lee is a high fashion stayer and certainly the most successful and important designer to show overseas in a long time.  I know I'll be following his work closely.
