Catherine Leon’s wearable Debut

Titled after the enigmatic Nasca Desert, Catherine Leon’s High Summer collection reflects the neutral, earthy tones and mysterious patterns that stretch across the Peruvian landscape. And like that intriguing plateau Leon’s clothing has an overall simplicity etched with details that keep it classic yet on-trend.

The up-and-coming Leon is one of 12 finalists in the Melbourne 2011 Debut competition at the Fashion Exposed trade fair. As with previous years those chosen as winners will be handed a lucrative prize package including a stand at the next Fashion Exposed trade fair valued at $3,000, as well as much needed exposure to help launch them into the industry.

Catherine Leon is a finalist in the Debut program’s apparel category. Stay tuned for more about the other finalists including those nominated in the accessories category. For more information about Fashion Exposed – which runs from August 28-30 – and to register to visit, head to
