Dion Lee is conquering more territory on home land. As part of the Sydney Opera House’s 45th anniversary, the staff’s looks have been rewerked in the best possible way: Dion Lee designed uniforms. It’s a heartfelt relationship for Dion, who has used the iconic building’s epic spaces for previous collections, working closely with CEO Louise Herron. “Growing up in Sydney, I had cultural experiences at the Sydney Opera House from a young age that have forever made it a special place for me, solidified by presenting collections in different spaces within the Opera House four times over the past 10 years,” Dion said. “It’s been an honour to further deepen a relationship that I consider so special by designing the Sydney Opera House uniform.” The collection comprises of 24 pieces, taking moments from the Jørn Utzon design, like the Monumental Steps inspiring fine pleated dresses and skirts. There are also Akubra hats. Dion still calls Australia home. The uniforms will be worn from mid-December this year by 500 staff. Another chapter in the Opera House’s history.
