Dayun Lee

Acente

Dayun Lee combines 1940s military uniform and the 1930s art movement to create her collection titled ‘Acente’, which features fine tailoring and abstract shapes. After reading the book, ‘The Last of the Soviets’ Dayun became fascinated with working-class women during WWII. She was so inspired by their stories she decided to portray their lives through her clothing. Using vintage fabric, sourced from Scotland, Dayun’s collection features pieces inspired by artists such as Picasso and Matisee, using multiple textures, colours and forms to reveal her dual inspiration-art and women of WWII.
