“My strong point is doing 3D work,” said Lee. “I like to see the clothes changing thanks to my work, see how they look in real life. It creates harmony.” The designer developed simple yet complex garments for his graduate collection, dubbed ‘Geometric Rave’. “I know it’s a bit of a paradox, but I don’t consider them minimalistic,” he explained.
“My clothes are very fashionable, so I’m thinking about how I can transpose this impactful design in a way that actually sells.”
Bright colours that remind of disco dancing – teal, red, green, purple, and orange – contrast with more neutral bases such as black, navy blue, and grey. Lee worked only with a few fabrics, chief among them nylon, mousseline, and jersey. Two tailored looks made it in the collection but still had more relaxed details. “The tailored jackets were very stiff, so I mixed them with jersey to soften them up a bit,” said the designer. An array of belted jumpsuits was at the centre of the collection, mixing the opposite ideas of freedom and restraint. “My clothes are very fashionable, so I’m thinking about how I can transpose this impactful design in a way that actually sells,” explained Lee.
