Sumary of Dion Lee blazes a supermodel-free trail in New York:
- Australia’s great acting export might have looked more at home modelling red and black moto-jackets and white, red and black pants than her foil dress foray for Balenciaga at the haute couture shows in July.
- This was Lee having his cake and reasoning about eating it too, with one foot dancing to a new York club mix and the other kicking around the commercial appeal with which many of his Australian customers have an easier relationship.
- While it remains to be seen whether McCann embraces a moulded monstera-leaf dress with matching boots, the appeal of neon mini-dresses with threaded panels and cropped jackets with safety belts could prove stronger.
- At his last show in Sydney he also chose to show in a new building development.
