In every designer's journey there is always that one person that inspired them to dive head first into the fashion industry. The one person that has a unique take on garment construction and sees fashion in a different light. Some designers look at clothing like art, others look at fashion as a money maker. But there is always that one particular person that inspires a designer to challenge themselves and push the boundaries of art and clothing.
In my case, that particular inspiration has been drawn from Dion Lee. An Australian born designer who attended the exact school I'm attending now. I cannot begin to explain the magnificent mind of Dion Lee.
My favourite design to date would be Dion's Woolmark 2012 entry.
Dion Lee has been dubbed the prodigy of the Australian Fashion Industry with his origami like pieces and his continuing fascination with the human skeletal system, he will continue to dominate the fashion world. I hope that one day that I will be able to follow in his footsteps.
