Inside Dion Lee's Post-Modern FW20 Show: Backstage at New York Fashion Week

The designer incorporates jewelry elements into his latest collection.

Australian designer Dion Lee has debuted his Fall/Winter 2020 collection at New York Fashion Week featuring his signature technical aesthetic and innovative construction. Along with his new pieces, the designer featured a selection of jewelry on the runway spanning from earrings, necklaces and chain-link constructions found throughout the men’s and women’s collection. Lee told Vogue:

“The collection started with this idea of incorporating jewelry elements into the clothes. I found this chain for myself that I have been wearing for the past year… [it informed the development of] a custom chain that moves between the jewelry, bags, shoes and into the clothes, used to gather fabric, to control pleating and to bring in the silhouettes in places.”

The presentation extended throughout each floor of The Shed in New York where the models descended down the elevators showcasing the latest designs. Dresses, shirts, jackets and other silhouettes arrived in a range of textures and tonal color palettes, as well as indigo tie-dye techniques. Lingerie-inspired corsetry has been incorporated into the women’s collection altering its restrictive fabric by using softer materials like jersey.

As for beauty, Eugene Souleiman of Wella Professionals created strong and natural hair looks with delicate braids to complement the designer’s latest pieces. Finally, small silver beads were glued onto the models’ brows, noses and hands further accentuating their features.
