David Dixon brought the strength and power of women and fashion to the runway at Toronto Fashion Week by designing a collection that woman will be proud to stand strong wearing. The Collection was dedicated to all the women who have been touched by ovarian cancer creating a strong message on the runway through the beauty and power that fashion brings.
Pairing black and white creates a strong statement when blocked together and this collection brought out the day to day strength and courage of women. From feminine flare to sophisticated structure the collection brought a powerful feel as each piece hit the runway.
The show ended with powerful and courageous women making their way onto the runway, filling the room with pride and emotion as fashion and strength came together to show the power that fighting women have.

Few designers at World Mastercard Fashion Week exemplify the same dedication to shaping Canadian fashion that’s evident in through the legacy of David Dixon. After twenty years in the business, Dixon has risen to the top of the Canadian fashion industry; even bringing the likes of Toronto’s mayor John Tory to line the runway for a glimpse at his newest creations. The debut of Dixon’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection is the ultimate testament to this fact to his dedication. Tuesday evening marked his 20th year in the industry marking this collection a landmark 40th.
The collection is as youthful and current as ever, with striking accessories like thick chokers made of beads and chains, rings that link with wrist cuffs while cascading chains over the hands, and a nod to gothic 90s style with each model sporting pitch black nail polish. Cage sandal shoes provided a nice, light balance to the heavy structuring characteristic of the collection’s garments: like the bold shoulder created by free flying fur shawls or the dramatic leather waist-pinching panels. Strong brows and flushed red lips brought even more power to the overall energy of the femme fatale vibe of the collection. It was the perfect compliment to a Fall/Winter line for the bold and courageous woman with a flair for the fashion-dramatic, but on her own terms.

Toronto fashion staple, David Dixon, surprised the fashion world on day two of World MasterCard Toronto fashion week by presenting a big twist on his signature style. Instead of his highly coveted evening wear for women, Dixon brought us a collection truly truly from the heart. After a beautiful video short featuring people from all walks of life reciting part of the famous Corinthians bible verse on what defines true love, wedding bells sounded and out came a series of wedding looks that rocked the runway.
This collection was presented as a preview of what we can expect to see at Kleinfeld Bridal when the infamous wedding dress proprietor opens the doors to it’s brand new boutique in the Yonge St. Hudson’s Bay this year. The collection included traditional white bridal looks alongside pretty pink wedding party outfit ideas, plus a few breathtaking alternatives that broke from the expected but still echoed classic bridal style. A heavy focus on show-stopping jewelry did well to round out each look with heavy beads and sparkling crystal pieces. Dixon is sure to help redefine the way we approach bridal fashion in 2014.
