PICADILLY f. DAVID DIXON
Born in Toronto, Canada and trained at the prestigious Ryerson University, David Dixon enjoys tremendous media acclaim and stands out among that of his Canadian contemporaries as one of the leaders in women's fashion design.
Dixon apprenticed with well-known Canadian designer Alfred Sung and in 1995, established the David Dixon label. Starting out at the Toronto Fashion Incubator, a highly respected organization focused on assisting new designers, he began wholesaling and manufacturing his line and in 1999, David left the incubator to his own design and production studio based in Toronto. David Dixon remains affiliated with the Incubator by sitting on their Board as an advisor.
Today, David Dixon is sold across Canada, the United States, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Switzerland, Germany, Hong Kong and Tokyo. He possesses a modernist openness towards emerging design and rejects the notion of radically changing from one fashion trend to another. Dixon's innovative designs have won him a following among the elite communities of film and fashion including; Jann Arden, Pamela Anderson, Meg Ryan, Wendy Crewson, Ashley MacIsaac, Holly Cole, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kari Matchett, Paul Gross and newcomer Kristen Booth.
His overriding theme is quite elegance. His belief is that women respond first to colour and texture, so when silhouettes are simplified and modern, he can explore with textiles. Whether it's creating signature fabrics or searching the globe for new fabrications, Dixon's clothing combines luxury with the functional and fantasy with sensibility.
