WMC Fashion Week: David Dixon (F/W 2014) – March 18th, 2014
Founded in 1995, a year after graduating Ryerson University, Toronto-based designer David Dixon remained true to his vision and focused on what he felt was a gap in the Canadian fashion Industry when he launched his David Dixon line – women’s contemporary eveningwear or event dressing. Interpreting the marriage between the classics and the modern, David Dixon combines luxury with the functional, and the aspiration with the sensible. All of Dixon’s designs are manufactured in Canada, utilizing the best of imported fabrics sourced through out the globe with the overriding theme of luxury.
Today, Dixon’s designs are sold across Canada and in select boutiques around the globe. Dixon possesses a modernist openness towards emerging design while rejecting the notion of radical change from one fashion trend to another. His innovative designs have won him a following among the elite communities of film and fashion, including Meg Ryan, Meagan Follows, Jeanne Beker, Noot Seear, Linda Evangelista, Coco Rocha, Wendy Crewson, Daria Werbowy, Sarah Polley, Jann Arden, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Alanis Morissette, Kristin Booth, Allana Zimmer, Nelly Furtado, Suzanne Rogers, Catherine O’ Hara, Katie Holmes, Iman, and the honourable Canadian first lady, Mrs. Laureen Harper.
David Dixon has been featured in Vogue, Marie Claire, Town & Country, Elle, Elle Canada, Flare, Fashion, Zink, The Globe and Mail and WWD to name a few. Dixon has also appeared on Fashion Television, Fashion File, Celebrity Style, MTV and Project Runway. (David Dixon, courtesy of WMC Fashion Week & IMG Canada)
