Backstage with REDKEN.

Words by

Veronica Stanford

Last night, Dion Lee presented its Resort ’17 collection. We’re sure you can guess how great it was.

On the 28th floor of the Bloomberg building and overlooking Sydney Harbour, the runway showcased the Glass, Light, Refraction collection.

But it’s backstage where the magic happens, so that's exactly where we went. In collaboration with Redken and The Grey Attic, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at the Dion Lee show. 

With Polaroid camera in hand, we managed to document the mayhem that is backstage, along with the man himself, Dion Lee.

Props to REDKEN hair director,  John Pulitano, for nailing loose ponytails and slicked-back grunge styles: the perfect complement Lee's silhouettes.

For lovers of beautiful fashion.
Count on extraordinaire Dion Lee to deliver the goods.

The street style in Sydney is fierce.
