Dayun Lee


Dayun Lee combines 1940s military uniforms and the 1930s art movement to create her collection ‘Acente’, featuring fine tailoring and abstract shapes. After reading the book The Last of the Soviets, Dayun became fascinated with working-class women during WWII and wanted to portray their lives through her garments.

Using vintage fabric sourced from Scotland, ‘Acente’ features pieces inspired by artists such as Picasso and Matisse, using multiple textures, colours and forms to reveal Dayun’s dual inspiration—art and women of WWII.
