Dion Lee will showcase his Resort ’18 Collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia on May 14th.
The New York-based Australian designer will officially kick off the proceedings as Friend of the Brand to MBFWA sponsor Mercedes-Benz.
“I’m extremely excited, opening for MBFWA is something I’ve always wanted to do and this year, with a lot of new projects in the mix, the timing feels perfect,” Dion told The Sunday Telegraph.
“I think there’s a strong synergy between both brands and a sophistication that speaks to our aesthetic through strong silhouettes and engineered design”.
Dion has presented his runway shows on the New York fashion week schedule for the last few seasons and made his debut at MBFWA in 2009.
For the resort show, he will showcase 40 looks from his autumn/winter collection.
