Although many will recognise him from his time on the hit TV series, Fashion Star, Eluxe met this American zero waste designer at New York Fashion week and have closely followed his career ever since.
His passion for zero waste and protecting nature seem to be the major sources of inspiration both for his creations as a fashion designer, as well as an illustrator. Most importantly he manages to weld the two majestically.
These themes are at the core soul of his ‘Piece Project’, where model Lauren Singer is photographed by Maeghan Donohue wearing Daniel Silverstein’s most recent collection, and the background is ultimately illustrated by the eco-designer himself. This way several arts combine for a good cause: visual arts and fashion join forces to promote Silverstein’s zero waste philosophy, where textile pollution is removed from the manufacturing process by being very imaginative in patterns on fabric and paper.
We love not only the quirky illustrations, but Daniel’s latest collection, too–especially the subdued palette and feminine draping. Given it’s total wearability and chic, urban silhouettes, we’re sure that Amber Valetta will yet again choose Daniel Silverstein Fashion to be part of her Master & Muse Collection on Yoox.
