About Hunter Dixon:
Officially launched in 2009, HUNTER DIXON is a contemporary fashion line with feminine flair that is recognized for its whimsical and flirty designs. Co-founded by Southern Belles Hunter Bell and Jennifer Dixon, the New York-based company began with hard work and determination and has established itself as a rising talent in the fashion industry. Each collection is filled with bold colors, unique detailing and abstract prints. Consisting of sleek pants, structured dresses, tailored jackets and classic blouses, Hunter Dixon is a brand where sensible simplicity meets metropolitan style.
This perfect marriage was formed three years ago when Hunter Bell and Jennifer Dixon shared an apartment in New York City with dreams of creating their own fashion label. Bell wanted to be a designer; Dixon, an entrepreneur. They partnered, dispensed with any romantic rags-to-riches notions and approached things pragmatically. Bell took a day job at a hedge fund while whipping up a collection on the side, and Dixon pounded the pavement, securing a few retailers and pitching potential investors. In October 2009, their hard work finally paid off. Through Bell’s day job, Hunter Dixon was soon set up with venture capitalist John Pound, President of Boston’s Integrity Brands Inc., who agreed to invest in the emerging line.
With Hunter as the designer and Jennifer behind business development, the South and North Carolina native pair sought to establish themselves with a collection that represented urban sophistication with a nod to Dixie elegance. The duo explains, "Southern women are bound by their unique heritage of grace and lady-like charm. Our collection combines bright colors and ruffles with modern shapes and styles. There is a juxtaposition of color play and softness which reflects our Carolina roots, with black and geometric draping inspired by our lives in New York.”
Recognizing how essential and versatile blouses can be to a women’s wardrobe, Hunter Dixon will be launching their “Blouse Program” in fall 2010. This collection will consist of the line’s signature silk blouses and will initially be offered in eight classic styles and color ways. The program will continue to evolve each season with the addition of exclusive colors and prints.
