JBCStyle: Hunter Dixon Style

Hunter Dixon is a contemporary clothing line and a fashion fairy tale with a never ending series of happily ever afters. Southern belles Hunter Bell and Jennifer Dixon co-founded the label in 2009; the North and South Carolina natives sought to establish themselves with a collection that represented urban sophistication with a nod to Dixie elegance: "Southern women are bound by their unique heritage 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."

Jennifer Dixon arrives at JBCStyle's New York office in a canary yellow blouse and tells us with quiet pride that venture capitalist John Pound, President of Boston's Integrity Brands, recently became a minority shareholder along with other investors. But no champagne celebrations; after meeting with CEO Bryan Zaslow Jennifer returns to the Hunter Dixon office. There's work to be done. Orders have doubled.

Today the label is available in 100 boutiques worldwide and launched at Saks Fifth Avenue this past spring. It all began once upon a time, far far back in 2009. Retrospective style:

"I like nothing better than meeting the innovators behind the new and upcoming labels," Zaslow declares. "The smart, driven design teams who know what it means to build from the ground up. They'll have empires one day. And I'll staff them."

"Everything is made in New York City."

Photographer Lindsey Belle's photoshoot is a stunning gallery featuring some of their looks; below are two of our favorite shots. In keeping with the tale, even their photographer is a belle. . .with a fairy godmother's lens.

"Everything is made right here in New York," Jennifer affirms. "We're really excited about our blouse program. It's a versatile, year round piece that everyone needs, and we're debuting it in eight colors this fall." We ask if that fitted-to-perfection yellow number she's rocking is Hunter Dixon. "It is, and I'm the fit model so I know what women want - structured fit, yet still feminine." It might be the most perfect blouse we have ever seen. Oprah, InStyle, Lucky, Self, and People magazines all seem to agree and feature the blouses in current issues. For all the latest on the line visit their blog.
