Founded in 2017 by its namesake, Leo Lin, the Sydney-based brand, has been developed around the concept of the 'New Era Female', symbolising fearlessness and confidence. This muse, at the core of every one of the label’s collections, inspires designs that speak to self-assured women whose fashion choices welcome both romanticism and bold self-expression.
The brand name itself represents a blend of cultural influences, with 'Leo' portraying the designer’s Australian name and 'Lin' his Chinese name. He has intricately woven this cultural blend into his designs, clear in the label's exclusive, hand-drawn prints and strong silhouettes that pay homage to his Chinese roots and Australian influences. Every piece illustrates a combination of power and playfulness, merging tailored precision with eccentric details like ruffles, offset with expert draping and classical influences.
Leo Lin operates from a refined atelier in his hometown, Dalian, and a design studio in Sydney, where a team of skilled creatives and craftspeople oversee the entire process of each collection, from design through to production. This commitment extends to the brand's focus on sustainable fashion, ensuring each piece is a timeless investment made with exceptional care and a dedication to quality.
Rich in soft floral prints and gorgeous pastel hues, the dresses in Leo Lin's collections can be perfect picks for semi-formal to formal daytime events, such as days at the races, glamorous luncheons or summer garden weddings. The label also has several dresses available in darker shades with bold silhouettes, that can be ideal for evening occasions.
So, whether for a day out in the sun with a touch of glamour or a sparkly evening affair, a Leo Lin hire dress can be the way to go.
Leo Lin's presence can be felt nationwide. However, as of December 2023, you can find the largest selection of Leo Lin dresses for hire at The Volte in Melbourne, closely followed by Sydney and Brisbane.
The founder of Leo Lin was born in China but completed high school and attended a university in Australia. All collections under the Leo Lin label are both designed and produced in Sydney.
