Dana Lee's Classic North American Look

Dana Lee is a menswear designer based in New York who believes in supporting local production.

Daughter to an architect, Dana grew up in a home that her father built over a creek in North Vancouver—hence surrounded by nature’s best: canyons, mountains, and forests.

Dana’s outdoor life also shaped her sense of comfortable designs, which have been evolving since the onset of her fashion career.

Her first collection, entitled A-Z, emphasized everyday basics like shapes and fabrics. Dana envisioned her collection in juxtaposition to the asymmetrical gothic styles of the time.

Her 2011 spring/summer collection is simple, practical, and down to earth—possibly a reflection of the designer herself.
