Meet Daniel Silverstein
Since appearing on season 2 of NBC’s Fashion Star, Silverstein has re-launched his brand under his own name, but he still strives to create collections that merge a strongly urban aesthetic with the zero waste design techniques he has developed; namely, a unique draping technique that keeps fabric waste close to zero.
His early work was defined by “spine” details and bold embellishments that contrast sheer panels. His dresses wrapped around the body to use the full yardage of fabric put into each piece. Simple, clean shapes and strong finishings, such as black bindings and zippers, also characterised his early style.
