After nearly taking first prize in Season 2 of America’s hit TV show Fashion Star, Daniel Silverstein has had some great success, and some great news.
To begin with, a selection of his AW13 pieces were chosen by Amber Valletta to be sold in her curated Yoox.com Master and Muse eco-fashion collection. Apparently, Amber was as completely taken with Daniel’s zero waste technique and artful designs as we are–we’re particularly obsessed with the attention to detail Daniel pays to the sexy backs of his creations. Zippers, keyhole cutouts and sheer fabric embellishment all ensure you look just as good going as you do coming in 100% NY designs.
These distinctively seductive styles have also proven to be popular in Daniel’s current hometown, New York, where his range has been selling out at the exclusive New York City boutique, Oak. NYC. Especially popular are his chunky knits, perfect for the cooler autumn climes in the northern USA.
Finally, the last bit of news we’ve learned about Silverstein is that his love of film and music will once again merge in another video, his second short film, which will feature an original song by rising star Ariana Di Lorenzo of Ariana and the Rose. The film captures her in the studio singing ‘Heartbeats’, wearing Silverstein’s Soul Party Jumpsuit creation.
Be sure to watch Eluxe TV–we’ll feature it as soon as it goes live. And in the meantime, feast your eyes on Daniel’s latest collection, below
