WHO is Dani Nichole?

Dani Nichole is a southern girl with city dreams, born and raised in Memphis, TN she moved to New York 3 years ago to purse fashion and attend the Fashion Institute of Technology. 

What is your biggest inspiration/ where do you get your inspiration from?

Everything around me is inspiration, I would have to say my biggest inspiration is my family and where I came from, people were not taking chances and putting it all on the line to fulfill their dreams I wanted to be different I needed to grow and so did my creativity and that was my biggest inspiration leaving and making a way out of no way.  I get my inspiration on the train, walking down the street, eating, and even sleeping. Its all around it comes naturally.

Who is your favorite designer(s) and why?

My favorite designer is Tom Ford. I just love him & his style he understands a woman’s silhouette he always gets it right his garments look rich, high-end, and sharp. He’s also not afraid to take chances and be innovative.

What do you think is your strengths and weaknesses in the art of fashion?

My strengths are that I breathe fashion and not just the “fun part” I understand garment construction and I can make and type of garment. My weakness is that I am too hard on myself and I’m a perfectionist I don’t know when to walk away. (Lol)

How are your clothes different from the other designer?
My garments are different because they come from my heart I sketch everything then I drape then I sew and my garments don’t look “Home Made” and I don’t take the easy way out by only using fabrics that stretch or spandex you will always see zippers, darts, seams, etc.

What is your favorite season for fashion?

My favorite season is fall you can do so much! Your layers look, leggings, boots, and cable knit sweater etc! (I get excited just thinking about it! lol)

What makes your design different? What is unusual?
 What makes my designs different are zippers! I love zippers you will always see something conventional on my work and I also love sweetheart neckline   that has also become my signature.

What is the best perk in being a designer?

Best perk is if you have nothing to wear you can sew it, if you have no money for clothes you can sew it, if you see a garment in the store and you don’t want to buy it you can sew it. 

What trends do you see being big for 2013?

Trends for 2013 lots of leather and lace bold colors and prints which I love!

What one piece of advice would you give to someone wanting to start a career in fashion?

INTERN! INTERN! INTERN! This is very important the experience is worth more than the money get the knowledge, get the connects, and also KNOW YOUR FABRICS!
