Canadian Consul General hosts “An Evening of Fashion” honoring celebrity fashion designer Dalia MacPhee – By Gene Chang

Consul General of Canada David Fransen hosted an exclusive night of fashion and music to honor Canadian designer Dalia MacPhee for her 13 years of service designing beautiful gowns for women, especially on the red carpet.  Most of the women attending this event were actually wearing Dalia MacPhee gowns and dresses, and along with the $50,000 worth of mannequins set up inside the mansion, provided a retrospect of the wide range of designs Dalia has produced.  Music was provided by Toronto born musician/actress Lilli Haydn (Lilli accompanied Roger Waters at the Coachella music festival when they played “Dark Side of the Moon“. She also performed on Cyndi Lauper‘s True Colors Tour 2008. That same year she appeared on the Showtime TV series, Californication)

Dalia hails from Vancouver Canada and is now based in Los Angeles.  I was lucky to spend some time with her during New York Fashion Week where she was busy dressing clients on the east coast.  She is one of the busiest designers I came across this season.  She has dressed celebrities on the red carpet for the Oscars, Golden Globes, Emmys, as well as the Canadian Gemini Awards.  Her gowns have been photographed on Heidi Klum, Scarlett Johansson, Khloe Kardashian, Hilary Duff, U.S. Open Tennis Champion Serena Williams and Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas.  Dalia has also produced wardrobe for film and television, including a guest designer role in “Tough Love” (TV Series).
