Toronto, March 25, 2015 – In my short five years in fashion, I’ve met fewer people as talented, genuine and down-to-earth as David Dixon. One of my first interviews for It’s All Style To Me was with him and his equally awesome brother Glenn Dixon, during their 2011 design collaboration at the Interior Design Show. Dixon is simply Canadian fashion royalty, having dressed everyone from Jann Arden, Pamela Anderson, Meg Ryan, Wendy Crewson, Ashley MacIsaac, Holly Cole, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kari Matchett, Paul Gross and many more.
Celebrating 20 years of fashion, David Dixon’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection looks to unify his passion with his own personal history. Creating fashion that empowers women is what Dixon does best, so what better muse than Joan of Arc for FW15? One of the most influential women in history, Joan of Arc had the strength and conviction to follow a difficult path and to see it through.
Where the story was in the colour, today it’s in the fabric. Textured fabrics that included everything from shredded chiffon, Tibetan lamb leather, silk, cashmere and sequins added depth to bold collection. There’s no doubt that everyone will be talking about the armour-influenced corsets and bustiers, sure highlights of the show. It’s really David Dixon’s ability to unify and present a complete package that sets him apart from his competition. The fashion, the craftsmanship, the model casting, the amazing accessories care of Rita Tesolin, the music, etc. – it all comes together perfectly like a ballet.
