Dion Lee is set to headline Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2017.

The designer will have his show sponsored and presented by Mercedes-Benz.

He will join notables such as Toni Maticevski, Carla Zampatti and Kym Ellery as part of the long-running 'Mercedes Benz Presents' series.

The annual initiative sees one designer chosen to kick off the industry showcase.

Lee's resort runway show will take place on Sunday, May 14.

He will also play an ambassadorial role with Mercedes-Benz Australia as a 'Friend of the Brand'.

“It’s great that Mercedes-Benz Australia has been able to support one designer each year in a show that really does help to define a designer’s vision and amplify that globally,” he said.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia will kick off at Sydney’s Carriageworks and continue until May 20.
