If you thought that fashion and science had nothing in common, think again. Now we creative types have little time for heavy discussion about scientific facts, so we’ll get straight to the point. Emerging Sydney designer Dion Lee has interpreted ‘mitosis’, the process where cells divide, in an impressive first collection that’s already gaining a cult following. His wearable designs form cell-like constructions around the body, in blood orange, bone white, flesh pink and silver grey hues. If that’s the result of a molecular muse, it looks like science just got interesting.
