CREATIVE, FOR DION LEE

Collaged & edited by Yan Yan Chan

I recently went on a bit of an exercise hiatus, two weeks without, but this morning I woke up and trained twice. Once at the gym, and once on the reformer. I feel so energetic, and I think I’m BACK. Did I also tell you that I quit coffee? It’s been 10 months too. On the topic of cutting things out, and giving things a break - I’ve been doing a lot of this recently. Exchanging old ways for new ones, giving up things that make me feel less, to make me feel more.

I’ve recently been shooting and producing a lot, which is incredible, but with that - means, less time to explore other mediums… like collage and painting - old favorites and pastimes of mine, which I like to keep for special projects. Here’s a new story for DION LEE - a bit of a comeback to myself from my collage hiatus, call it a bit of an intermission.

Hey old friend, it’s been a long time coming, but how glad I am, that you decided to show up. I really do hope you’re here to stay.

HAPPY THURSDAY, IT’S ALMOST FRIDAY.

Fully VAMFF

BEHIND THE SCENES

Before you scroll down, and take a look at the visual diary of our video making. I’d like to start of with a little trip down memory lane. I know a lot of you guys have grown up with me, from the time I started on Tumblr at the age 15, to my first ever attempt at blogging - under the name of “Parfasseux”, to my slight cyber hiatus at age 19 (the time I moved and interned in New York City). To now - content creating full time, and working for myself. To say the least, this space has given me endless opportunities in work, and travel - it has been a place that has marked some of my most transformative moments, in my career and in my personal life. A space that has pushed myself to express and create in ways I never thought I would be able to.

It is with such gratitude that I share with you guys, my first video I got to produce, style, creative direct and star in - for a client I’ve worked with for the last 3 years. VAMFF - thank you so incredibly much for putting your utmost trust in me, especially at a time I didn’t. To Mercedes Benz for transporting us, to Visit Melbourne for being so hospitable, to VAMFF for putting all your faith in me, and to Cinema Thom, Audrey, Katie for executing it all!

So proud to share with you our video - that we shot in Melbourne, through the storm, and through torrential rain.

A LIST OF ALL THE PLACES WE WENT (AND I WANT TO THANK):

  • Started the day off at The Sister Studio’s Factory. This is where their experiments, ideas, patterns and deliveries all come to life.

  • Stopped off at KONG in Richmond for Korean Fried Chicken Wings - this place is truly my first stop, whenever I’m North. It’s my absolute guilty pleasure. We don’t seem to have a Korean restaurant similar to this in Sydney… and if we do - can someone please share?

  • We took some for the road trip ahead, in our ride thanks to Mercedes Benz Australia. Our first stop in the Mornington Peninsula; The Jackalope Hotel. A favorite destination of mine, and a must see for anyone driving down the Mornington. They have their own Winery “Rare Hare”, where the fire blazes over a rainy afternoon - or opens up to a view of their vivid Vineyard. Not to mention the incredible interior and exterior of the hotel. Filled with art installations that welcome you from the minute you drive in, from Emily Floyd’s impressive Jackaloe sculpture to Rick Owen’s infamous Stag Bench. I would spend a long weekend here.

  • Almost a 10 minute drive, up next; is Pt Leo’s Sculpture park. It wasn’t the perfect weather conditions for a stroll in the park, but we managed to run around, umbrella covered, in sequins and gowns - so that was an A+ for trying.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO VISIT MELBOURNE FOR ORGANIZING OUR VISITATIONS & FOR BEING SO HOSPITABLE, OUR WHOLE WAY THROUGH.

SOFT, YET STRONG. How a woman is. Thank you to my friends for creating such beautiful movement pieces, sustainably and oh so honoring to the female form. A collaboration between Jess Ruby James, Bella Thomas and I.
