David Dixon was born and raised in Toronto. He has enjoyed tremendous media acclaim and been recognized as one of the leaders in the Canadian fashion scene. Inspiring clients, media and colleagues since he began designing, David is a Canadian fashion leader. After ten years running his own label, he captures eyes, hearts and imaginations.
David polished his innovative construction skills at Toronto's Ryerson University, graduating in 1993. Before beginning his own company, he was fortunate to apprentice with another inspirational Canadian designer, Alfred Sung. After those experiences, he was ready to make his vision a reality.
In 1995 he established the David Dixon Label. He moved into in a studio at the TFI, where he started wholesaling and manufacturing his line. A mere year after starting his label, he was named City of Toronto New Designer of the Year and City of Toronto Designer of the Year (2000-2001). Even though David left the TFI to open his own studio, he remains affliated with the TFI by sitting on the Board as an advisor and acting as a mentor to new designers.
More recently, Dixon has expanded his successful signature collection, and has partnered with several National and International brands. Collaborating with Town Shoes has resulted in a nationally recognized David Dixon shoe line, while partnerships with The Shopping Channel and Mattel International along with exclusive licensing rights for Barbie by David Dixon, have further increased the designers’ global recognition. Currently the David Dixon Signature Collection can be found at Holt Renfrew, The Bay and specialty boutiques internationally.
His collections exude a quiet elegance; by employing simple and modern silhouettes, collections are defined by his exceptional understanding of textiles.
