Meet the Canadian-born British designer
who's caught the attention of Hollywood's A-list

NAME: edeline lee USP: minimalism for 'the future lady'
When your work is being worn by the
likes of Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander
and pop star Taylor Swift, you know
you're doing something right.
It's some going, given Edeline Lee
launched her eponymous line just four
years ago, quickly becoming one of the
industry's most exciting new talents.
HOW DOES ART INSPIRE YOU?: 'I'm
always inspired by art. For Autumn
Winter 2017, I was looking at the collage
work and life story of Hannah Hoch.
She was one of the only women artists
in the Berlin Dada movement. She made
work about being a woman in her time,
as Hitler was coming to power: female
identity versus historical context. I felt
that was so relevant in our time.'

PROUDEST MOMENT?: 'Seeing a
beautiful, accomplished and powerful
woman, who could have her pick of
anything to wear, wearing my clothes
is an absolute wonder and a humbling
experience. All well-known women
represent and mean something to the
public psyche, that's why we place
celebrities on these pedestals.'
WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD?:
'I'm looking forward to producing
a pre-collection for the first time.
Pre-Fall 2018. Watch this space!'

I'm inspired by women - always
women. When a woman chooses her
clothing, she is thinking of the
things she needs to do in this dress,
the places she will go, how
comfortable she needs to be, the
image she wants to project. It is so
beautiful and life-affirming to see
real women in my clothes; to see
them be useful to somebody.

brief encounters

WORDS OF WISDOM?: 'I studied at
Central Saint Martins and interned a
lot. Internships are necessary in this
business. At the end of the day, this is a

craft and the only way to really learn is
to do it, to make mistakes and learn
how not to make the same mistakes
the next time. I encourage any future
designers: intern as much as possible.'

Laughter, they say, is the
best medicine so if you
need cheering up now that
summer's coming to an
end, Kerry Godliman is one
of the finest stand-ups
working today. Although
best-known as Hannah
from Ricky Gervais' sitcom
Derek, it's live you'll get the
richest flavour of her skills.

Late, great fashion designer
Cristóbal Balenciaga isn't as
well known as, say, Chanel
or Versace, but this
beautiful V&A exhibition
goes a long way to putting
that right. It examines his
work and legacy, with more
than 100 pieces crafted by
'the master', his protégées
and others working in the
same innovative tradition.

There are two types of
people: those who saw Jez

and those who will forever
kick themselves. Now

an activist turned farmer
in 80s Ireland. Theatre at
its most soulful and raw.
