Fashion month is upon us. In our four-part series, Farfetch x Vogue, global editors get up close and personal with designers from the cities – and, as it happens, fashion capitals – they both call home. Up first, Vogue Australia fashion director and NYC resident Christine Centenera in conversation with longtime collaborator and fellow Australian expat Dion Lee. Here, they talk first meetings, finding inspiration and life in New York…

‘We’ve had a longstanding relationship ever since Dion’s graduate show, before coming to work with him consulting and styling on collections.’ Christine
‘In many ways, I very much evolve a collection as Christine works on it.’ Dion
‘I get so inspired by people on the street – that’s why I love living in New York, I love seeing the people. I work 24/7, but I always try to keep my eyes open.’ Christine
‘I’ve really enjoyed having a base [in New York], having a stronger understanding of how the city works… Leaving and coming back definitely makes you appreciate it more.’ Dion
