A reminder and homage to the survivors of Japan’s tsunami disaster in 2011, this David Dixon tutu is covered in traditional Japanese fans. Dixon hopes to remind us of the simplicity and beauty that Japan gives us internationally as a leader in culture, technology and history.

Born in Toronto and trained at Ryerson University, David Dixon enjoys tremendous media acclaim and stands out among 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 left the incubator to launch his own design and production studio based in Toronto. Today, David Dixon is sold across Canada, the United States, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Switzerland, Germany, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
