After presenting his pre-fall 2016 collection in New York, Australian designer Dion Lee stopped in Los Angeles for a few days before heading back to Sydney to meet with West Coast stylists and influencers.
“Empire” actress and Taylor Swift squad member Serayah McNeill, stylist Tara Swennen and models Nicole Trunfio and Marta Pozzan were among those at Soho House West Hollywood for a dinner Sunday, and Lee held private appointments at Chateau Marmont Monday and Tuesday. The collection is currently stocked at Bergdorf Goodman, Elyse Walker, Ron Herman and at Shopbop.com and Forward.com.
Lee, who will present his fall 2016 collection at New York Fashion Week on Feb. 13, said he’s also considering showing his next resort collection in Sydney in May. “The pre-seasons allow us a bit more time to talk editors through a collection,” he said.
The unusually chilly temperatures in Los Angeles were perfect for showing his expanded collection of outerwear. “Los Angeles is like Sydney. Even though the climate isn’t cold enough for coats, it doesn’t stop people from wearing them.”
