His own mark on Canadian Fashion Design. Born in Toronto, Canada and trained at the prestigious Ryerson University, David Dixon enjoys tremendous media acclaim and stands out among that of his Canadian contemporaries as one of the leaders in women’s fashion design.
Dixon apprenticed with well-known Canadian designer Alfred Sung and in 1995, established the David Dixon label. Starting out at the Toronto Fashion Incubator, he began wholesaling and manufacturing his line and in 1999. , Now practicing out of his own design and production studio, David Dixon remains affiliated with the Incubator by sitting on their Board as an advisor.
Today, David Dixon is sold across Canada, the United States, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Switzerland, Germany, Hong Kong and Tokyo. He possesses a modernist openness towards emerging design and rejects the notion of radically changing from one fashion trend to another.
The overriding theme in Dixon’s collection is quiet elegance. His belief is that women respond first to colour and texture, so when silhouettes are simplified and modern, he can explore with textiles. Whether it’s creating signature fabrics or searching the globe for new fabrications, Dixon’s clothing combines luxury with the functional and fantasy with sensibility.
David turned to us for business cards to distribute to his clientele and industry colleagues. We looked to his work recent work on the runway of Toronto Fashion Week 2013 for inspiration, where he showcased some brilliant numbers in black and white. We designed the card to be a slimmer size than usual business cards, which is subtle and elegant as it frames the length of his name. On one side, the card is a lovely smooth white surface to contrast the black text in a slight sheen. On the backside, we lined the cards with a cottony black stock. When held in hand, the card offers a unique experience of duo-texture that is both concisely modern and textural — much like his collection.
