Originally from Toronto, Dee moved to Victoria in 2015 and soon after discovered his passion for making his own clothes. Without any formal training in design, he learned the basics of pattern-making and sewing, and within a year, Dee’s skills excelled. He designs and sews everything himself using locally sourced materials.
This is Dee’s first collection and runway show, and is a reflection of his own personal style and passion. All black bomber style nylon jackets and oversized cotton/bamboo shirts created with clean lines are what define the collection. Designed for layering, any combination of shirt, jacket, shorts or pants can be worn together to look casual or sophisticated. Although designed as a menswear line, Dee’s pieces also work for women.
On the runway: shoes by Baggins, hats by Robertas, jewellery by Treasure.
