Demy Lee moved from her native Korea to New York City to study at the Parsons School of Design. On graduation, she worked for Calvin Klein, GAP and Tony Burch. Following the birth of her first child, she decided to launch her own knitwear label in 2007.
Focusing initially on cashmere, DEMYLEE New York has expanded to include a range of knitwear and accessories, as well as a menswear label LAD by DEMYLEE, which is exclusive to Japan.
DEMYLEE New York caters to those who appreciate the simple luxury and powerful versatility of the individual piece. Her signature balance of timeless sophistication and youthful novelty fills a niche in the industry for classic yet current knitwear.
