Canadian designers from across the country flocked to Toronto to show their Fall and Winter 2013 collections.
The tents were set up at David Pecaut Square in downtown Toronto and industry members, media, designers and fashion enthusiasts showed up for the first look at what Canadians can expect to see on the shelves in six months.
The longtime womenswear designer brought girl power to the runway. In David Dixon’s liner notes, he lamented the inequalities faces by women in today’s society and encouraged women to break through “the glass ceiling.” In the lead-up to the show, Dixon played a short satirical film showing a woman who was lambasted for speaking her mind. Dixon notes that his Fall/Winter 2013 collection is driven by social consciousness and female empowerment.
The striking collection featured power suits, peplum jackets and pencil skirts, lace-adorned hound’s-tooth pants, elegant gowns, and outerwear essentials. Dixon’s collections often embrace feminine silhouettes and shapely signature styles.
Every season, Dixon designs for every woman and offers a wide array of separates to compliment a variety of female shapes, while always befitting the modern professional.
The fashion week mainstay only announced he was showing just as momentum was building for the shows, yet again produced a line that is not only wearable, but also fills the fashion gap for the driven woman who always has her eye on the style guide.
