Fashion designer David Dixon, is known as the "designer guy". He is recognized as one of the leaders in Canadian fashion and as one of the most respected designers.
This year he celebrates his lines 10th anniversary. From 1995 to 2000 Dixon was a Toronto Fashion Incubator. However, he became tired of working for other designers, so he pushed out on his own using the TFI resources to get his start.
After some struggling and an interesting roller coaster ride, Dixon has become quite a successful designer and his name has become well recognized in the fashion industry.
Dixon graduated from Ryerson Polytechnic University in 1994. He was named the City of Toronto New Designer of the Year in 1996, Fur Council of Canada Bronze in 1998. and the Matinee Fashion Foundation Grant Recipient in 1999 and 2000.

Just have a look at Dixon's 2005 Summer collection. Romantic, Glamorous, yet done in classic lines he so loves. It is obvious that he stays true to his heart with black and white.
This seasons collection is not only romantic, it is trendy. Dixon's heavily used capri pant, floral prints, hot shade of ochre and brown go along way towards adding a little sizzle.
It is quite obvious that great thought has gone into mixing color with the lines of the garment and the fabric texture. His collection boasts of more than just another designer garment.
David's clothing is known for combining luxury with the functional, fantasy with the sensible. They say fashion reflects the society it is part of.
If that's the case Canada must be hopelessly romantic, elegant and just a little bit edgy.
