Hailing from Sydney, Australia, the Dion Lee brand was established in 2009 and made its debut at Australian Fashion Week. Now, it’s available at exclusive retailers in Australia and around the world. Winning numerous awards, the Dion Lee label is known for its ‘experimental construction combined with traditional tailoring’. You’ll find styles like a pink fitted rib knit long sleeve dress or a blue silk satin midi dress. Their range even extends to a white lace corset, parachute cargo pants or a black jumpsuit. All these are just a glimpse of Dion Lee designs that come in a range of different colours, materials and styles. Whether you are going to an evening cocktail party or a special daytime event, you’re sure to find something in the Dion Lee collection to suit the occasion.
Hiring premium designer labels instead of buying them could be your answer if you want to look edgy yet elegant without spending a fortune. Not only can you save money, but it also means you can try a range of styles and trends that you wouldn’t necessarily wear all the time. If you are looking for beautiful Dion Lee dresses for hire, the Volte has an extensive collection that you can conveniently browse through online, and they can be shipped to you across Australia. You may even be able to find dresses that are no longer available to buy from other Dion Lee stockists.
How to style dresses from Dion Lee?
From pleats, pockets, utility-style panelling and cut-outs, to topstitching, bead toggles, lace trim and hooks, Dion Lee dresses come with a variety of different unique features, so how best to style your dress will depend on the design of the dress as well as the occasion. Whether it’s glitzy earrings, a silver clutch, some stilettos, a designer handbag or your favourite pair of boots – by adding some personal touches, you can create a look that’s your own. You can also use jewellery, shoes and accessories to dress your outfit up or down depending on the season, the type of event and the time of day. You could even add an elegant hat for a day at the races. If you need some inspiration, browse through our collection of shoes, handbags, necklaces, chokers, belts, tiaras and other accessories, all available for hire at the Volte.
How does the try-on feature work?
Whether you are size four or fourteen, at the Volte, we rent out Dion Lee clothing in a range of different sizes, and the size of each garment will be clearly displayed on the website. In some cases, the lender may also include additional information about the fit in the product description. So that you look and feel your best, we know how important it is to make sure your Dion Lee outfit is the correct size for you, especially if it is designed to be fitted. Unless the size is incorrectly stated on our website, you’ll be unable to get a refund if you hire a dress that doesn’t fit, so that’s why some lenders provide the try-on feature. This allows you to hire the dress for one day only at a lower price, solely for the purpose of trying your dress on. If you love it and it fits well, you can then pay the full booking price and keep the dress for the standard hire period, or you can return it to the lender and re-book it in time for your special occasion. Trying your Dion Lee dress on first before you commit to the full hire also gives you the opportunity to try it on with your shoes, jewellery and other accessories. That way, you can ensure you have the perfect outfit sorted and ready to go when the special day arrives.
What do I do if I am unable to return a dress on time?
The standard hire period at the Volte is four days, although some lenders also offer an extended hire period of eight days at a slightly higher price. It is standard practice for lenders to include a pre-addressed post-bag when they send you the dress, making the dress return process easy. In most cases, the lender will also take care of the dry cleaning, and the cleaning costs will be included in the rental fee. If, however, you borrow a dress and discover you won’t be able to return it on time, you’ll be charged the standard four-day hire cost for each four-day period the item is late. This is because returning a dress late will impact on the lender’s ability to clean the dress and get it ready for the next borrower. The Volte relies on borrowers and lenders working together to make the hiring process as simple and efficient as possible.
Whether you’re going to a black tie wedding, a cocktail party, a birthday lunch or a day at the races, step out in style in a Dion Lee dress, Dion Lee top or Dion Lee skirt, and you’ll look and feel amazing. As well as Dion Lee, the Volte is home to many other designer labels, including With Jéan, Mister Zimi, Sheike, SIR the Label, Shona Joy, Manning Cartell, Twosisters The Label and many more.
