It's Not All About Making Money…



Dẻv is Founder and CEO of Omni-Media and Entertainment, having been a creative force in the fashion industry for over 14 years.

As a teenager, Dẻv began his own fashion advertising agency. He developed some of fashion's most cutting edge advertisements, including the 2001-2004 Diesel campaign for “Successful Living,” the 2002 “Return to Lanvin” campaign, the 2005 Dior Homme campaign inspired by Michael Jackson, and the 2005 Canadian Launch of Sean John. In addition, his company developed marketing initiatives for Kiehl's, Chanel, YSL, and the launch of North America's first commercial grade cosmetic for men, “Tout Beau” by Jean-Paul Gaultier. In 2006, Dẻv transitioned his advertising agency into a production company, coordinating a number of North America's premiere fashion, beauty and entertainment events. Under his leadership, his firm produced shows for New York Fashion Week, Toronto's L'Oreal Fashion Week, Fashion Cares, Bloor Street Entertains, the Miss Universe Pageant, the Toronto International Film Festival and has just wrapped production on a 13-week exposé on the fashion industry as a reality series.

Dẻv was also instrumental in launching The Lumina-TO festival with L'Oreal and the $300million dollar renovation of the Royal Ontario Museums Michael Lee Chin Crystal designed by Daniel Libeskind and featuring the Right Honourable Michele Jean - both Canada's largest and most ambition art project to date.

While running his company, Dẻv also spent four years with the Fashion Design Council of Canada (FDCC) where he helped launch and organize Toronto Fashion Week. In particular, he helped secure and produce the 50-year Retrospective Celebration for MISSONI.

In August 2004, Dẻv was appointed Fashion Director for an international award winning fashion quarterly, “Anokhi”, a fusion magazine targeted to South Asian Diaspora. Under his creative direction, the publication strengthened its market share in North America and the United Kingdom.

Dẻv is a former Board of Director for the New Leaders Committee at SunnyBrook and Women's College Hospital. He organized and launched ‘An Evening with Rudy Giuliani', a fundraiser in support of the hospital raising over $18 million. He has also volunteered his time and resources to many AIDS organizations and has raised and donated over $30 million to such related organizations over an 8 year span.

After a brief hiatus, 2012 has returned Dẻv to Canada and production by hosting the Royal Family of Jaipur for a Royal Trust fundraising effort. For North America, this was a FIRST EVER event in support of building orphanages across the Indian Subcontinent.
