Dion Lee Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Review
Description
Dion Lee's Fall 2019 show will make you want to wear a corset. How he modernized it by stripping it off and styling it with softly-tailored suits and cut-out dresses was a testament to how women's clothing, from the past, present, and into the future, was and will always be powerful!

The corset and the concept of such have certainly changed in the last few years. In the olden days, it used to be constricting garment that confined women with less agency and restricted movements. But now, as proven by Dion Lee’s Fall 2019 show, it’s become a subversive symbol of female power and sexuality. Here, the corset was stripped to its barest bones, its skeleton barely covering the female form but still holding it up with painstaking rigor. It was paired with softly-tailored suits and floaty skirts as if to emphasize the juxtaposition of the classic garment with the more masculine concept of tailoring or the more freeing aspects of pleated skirts and dresses. Adding to the liberty were the hints of draping, first as softly defined in satin shades of lime and deep dark green, then unto the more rigid ruched white dresses that seemed 90s-esque. The lace used was slightly vintage touch, but how it was cut and constructed into cut-out dresses and skin-tight pantsuits were interesting and contemporary. As a whole, Dion Lee‘s collection was incredibly modern, further proving that the future is indeed female, even when they wear corsets!
