We always knew that David Dixon was a popular guy, but the massive crush at the door (we even had to kick a few brazen imposters out of our seats!) was a true testament to his reputation as an established Canadian designer.  The collection was safe, shape-wise, and Dixon focused his lens on blending cultural references for his new “Global Tribe.” This meant showcasing swaths of Spanish woven raffia on cocktail dresses, Japanese print jackets, Canadian wild fur stoles and Indian mosaic tile mirrored dresses to deliver his melting-pot message. But it wouldn’t be a Dixon collection without a little romance, so his finale dresses featured red carpet-ready, fluttering, feather-like appliqués.
