Since graduating from Parsons with the Best Menswear Designer Award in 2014, Berlin-based Chinese born Korean designer has been taking his collection to brand-new places. Being the first menswear designer to win the H&M Design Award (2015), Ximon decided to start his own eponymous line XIMONLEE. Ximon’s meticulous and highly original work has since made a strong impact within the industry. Apart from his global collaboration with H&M, he was invited to showcase his AW15 collection in Vfiles Made Fashion during NYFW in February 2015 and at the prestigious LVMH Prize showroom in Paris. Ximon Lee has been selected to the 2016 Forbes 30 Under 30 list after one year since the line was launched. Ximon continues the work of studying major themes of contemporary attitudes towards: gender and body image, sexuality and ethics. With each new season comes a matu-rity for deeper identities and the reconnection to human emotion so often left behind in the context of fashion.
