About the Designer
Dan Liu is an award-winning Canadian fashion designer with almost two decades of experience in the fashion industry.
After studying at university for Psychology and Computer Science, Dan realized he had to pursue his love for fashion. In 1997, he attended Aoyama Fashion College in Tokyo, Japan and studied Fashion Design and Marketing. He started making his own knitwear accessories and founded his company.
Numerous Hollywood celebrities who frequented his first Yorkville store in Toronto favoured his debut knitwear collection. His line evolved to couture pieces featuring knit, crochet and embroidery details and his current chic yet elegant apparel can be worn from day to night.
He is known for contemporary designs and tailoring that accentuates the female form with a romantic flair. He draws his inspirations from his Chinese and Japanese heritage and he is known for pairing beauty with practicality and wearability.
Working from concept to patterns, he incorporates colour contrasts and details to ensure every piece is perfect from any angle.
Dan has presented his collections at World MasterCard Fashion Week, L’Oreal Toronto Fashion Week, Tokyo Fashion Festival and on February 2016, he was accepted by WME/IMG New York for New York Fashion Week showcasing his Fall/Winter 2016/2017 Collection. Because of the remarkable success, he will be showcasing at NYFW again for his Spring/Summer 2017 on September 2016. Dan is also a host/producer of Fashion Girls by Dan, a popular Chinese fashion makeover reality TV show filmed in Toronto. The show has been on air nationwide in Canada on Rogers Television OMNI Channel 2 since 2014 and will be aired China-wide in 2016. Dan also has a personal fashion and beauty consulting business that currently serves 350 clients. He has been featured in many media outlets and in 2015, was the first Canadian fashion designer to be interviewed by British Vogue twice in a row.
