First we had news that the master of feminine fashion, Zimmermann, had been added to the New York Fashion Week line-up and now we've just had word that Sass and Bide is being added to the schedule and Dion Lee is forgoing a London Fashion Week show to also present its Spring Summer 2014 offering at the Lincoln Centre in NYC. This will be Dion Lee's U.S. debut and comes after the label presented at London Fashion Week in February 2012.
As you'd expect, Dion is looking forward to the show as much as we're looking forward to seeing it, saying "I am extremely excited to show in New York for the first time this season. We have had a great amount of support from the U.S. market and I'm really looking forward to presenting the collection in a new way."
Dion Lee's show is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 11 while Sass and Bide is penciled in for Tuesday, Sept. 10 — stay tuned for our runway rundown afterwards.
