David Dixon a class act
What a way to end Fashion Week. Following his Barbie line, David Dixon showed an elegant, lovely collection that had just the right amount of edge to keep it interesting and surprisingly fashion-forward. Think of it as the collection that Pink Tartan was aiming for: classy, but a little playful, too.
Feathered capelets and fur arm-warmers signalled a more outre Dixon, while shiny, swim-suit-like dresses with graphic-print skirts, and silver silk shantung cocktail frocks made eveningwear exciting again.
David Dixon then brought the drama for his final few pieces, including a super-high-waisted moonbeam-silver silk skirt, and a drop-dead gorgeous floor-length gown covered in black tafetta petals. It was his disco-ball dress, however, that brought the house down and cheers from the champagne-armed audience, with dozens and dozens of tiny mirrors sewn onto a chic black sheath.
What a class act. Well done, sir.
