TORONTO, March 1, 2016 /CNW/ - PICADILLY is proud to announce their debut showing at Toronto Fashion Week this March. The team will be showcasing their new line supported by the contributions of Canadian designers David Dixon, Joeffer Caoc, and Franciska Veress on a show produced by Anna Nenoiu and styled by Zeina Esmail.

"We are thrilled to be part of this year's event. We are in amazing company with the line-up of designers and are proud to be a Canadian company that is also celebrating our fortieth year in business," says Neil Dombrowsky, President of PICADILLY.

PICADILLY's debut showing will take place on March 18th at 6PM. PICADILLY's featured designers for their 2016 line include:

DAVID DIXON: David has been recognized as one of the leaders in the Canadian fashion scene, receiving vast media acclaim. David's designs are about evolution, as he strives for growth within his collections from one season to the next, rather than radically jumping from one fashion trend to another. His innovative designs have won him a following among the elite communities of film and fashion, including Meg Ryan, Jeanne Beker, Noot Seear, and Linda Evangelista. This season at World MasterCard Fashion Week marks Dixon's 40th collection over the past 20 years.

JOEFFER CAOC: Joeffer is a highly acclaimed Toronto based designer sought-after by music and film celebrities such as Nelly Furtado, Shania Twain, Katy Perry, Angela Bassett and supermodels Coco Rocha and Daria Werbowy. He is known for his signature style, which consists of exceptional fit, construction and unconventional detailing combined with enduring style. His garments are classic structured and feminine. Caoc has been recognized for his contributions to the fashion industry with several awards including the Canadian Designer of the Year award (1995, 1997, 1999) and the Ryerson Graduate Alumni Achievement Award (2000). He was included in Maclean's magazine's "Top 100 People to Watch" (2000).

FRANCISKA VERESS: Franciska founded her own fashion design company, Veress Couture in 2010. And launched her first collection at the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto. The following year Franciska focused on luxurious fur accessories, and also designed costumes for several fashion shows, including Catwalk Cure and the Bell Celebrity. As a designer, Franciska thrives on pushing the boundaries and brings a European flare to her line. She understands design and product development, and makes clothes for the woman who appreciates quality, attention to detail and excellence in tailoring.
