LARA'S NYFW PHOTO DIARY: DION LEE
"Dion Lee is one of Australia's most talented fashion exports, and just now at NYFW, we got a reminder of why. His FW14 collection was a modern ode to Australiana. Inspired by bush flora, fauna and colonial themes, the line was contemporary and clean, while repping the creepy aspects of the land Down Under. There were drop-waist saddle belts, snake skin elements, pinafore pleating, crocodile hide and desert pea, wattle and waratah references. Amazing. One pair of white RM Williams please."
