ABOUT DALIA MACPHEE

Dalia MacPhee is the founder of the DALIA MACPHEE Clothing brand. The Toronto Sun has referred to her as “The new IT girl of the red carpet”, and Entertainment Tonight has called her “Couture with a Conscious.” Dalia was recently also honored by the Consul General of Canada. Dalia grew up in Vancouver Canada. When she was 11 years old her home economics teacher threatened to fail her for not being able to complete a mandatory school blouse. 10 Years later Dalia launched her first collection. One year after that her brand was carried in 1500 stores nationwide. She’s been featured in Vogue, Allure, Marie Claire and on countless television Networks.

In addition, 95% of her line is Vegan Friendly.

STATEMENT

“The job of the designer is to illuminate the soul. In the art of fashion, the body is the canvas and the fabric is the paint. The role of the fabric is to accentuate the form. It’s composition texture and color must all be in complete symbiosis with the subject, complimenting, not overpowering, honoring, not discriminating, expressing not constraining the figure’s most treasured qualities. On the rare occasion with all these components seamlessly integrate, a portrait of the self is powerfully displayed. My favorite medium is the gown. To date I have designed approximated 2000. Each one represents a stitch in the fabric of my own life. Through the ripples of this fabric I have learned some of my greatest lessons, the most powerful of which has been to surrender to the direction of the design.“
