It’s easy to see why Daniel Vosovic - a former Project Runway finalist - was among the group of talented upcoming fashion designers in this year’s CFDA Incubator Program. At the Open House event today, we were lucky enough to get a chance to meet him to find out more about his vision and inspirations.
Daniel’s work for the Fall/Winter collection was inspired by the 90s schoolgirl look, but there’s no Britney Spears to be found here - this slouchy, romantic edginess is unique to Daniel alone. The end result is a feminine, vintage style with evocative patterns and fierce, understated silhouettes. The raindrop pattern, a key staple of this collection, complements the casual, edgy aesthetic without overpowering it.
His personal AHA! moment? When, at the age of 18, he realized he didn’t want to be an architect, and instead took a summer fashion course where he designed clothes for the first time. Daniel learned to love seeing the skeleton of his pieces come together as his artistic vision slowly came to life. But the greatest part of being a designer, he says, is seeing the look on his best friend’s face when she tries on his new designs. Daniel declared that the greatest feeling of being a designer is knowing the impact that he can make on a woman. It may just be fabric, but it can totally change everything about the way we look and feel.
