Dion Lee opened Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia presenting his Resort 2018 collection held outdoors on the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House. Despite threatening grey skies, the show drew a large crowd of industry heavy weights and international photographers.

Lee's Resort 2018 collection featured a mix of luxe sportswear and deconstructed tailoring, staying true to his aesthetic. Crisp shirting, towelling knits and fluid dressing gown coats were delicately balanced with angular necklines, asymmetric hems and trailing ribbon dresses. Detailing were executed in an intricately laser cut skirt while splices of silk were finely laid over netting.

Alongside womenswear, Lee debuted his menswear capsule range consisting of tailored double breasted blazers, tracksuit pants and slick, laminated rain coats. The navy bomber jacket with chunky hardware zippers was a standout.

A confident collection, worthy of an iconic location, Dion Lee set the (sails) bar high for the week ahead.
