Daniel Silverstain, a former musician who played the trumpet, guitar and piano, discovered his passion for design on a trip to India where he practiced in knitting, screen-printing, and jewelry making. Daniel began his design career in Israel serving as the Visual Merchandise Director for the Israeli branch of popular label Keds Kids. In 2009 Daniel moved to New York in order to complete his studies at the Fashion Institute of Technology. While still an undergraduate, Daniel was selected to collaborate with the Danish-based fashion label Muuse, a fashion group that partners with emerging young designers from around the world to produce their collections and sell them to the public. Early in his career, Daniel worked with the design teams of renowned fashion brands such as 3.1 Philip Lim, Calvin Klein Collection, and Elie Tahari.
In 2011, Daniel was chosen by Vogue Italy as one of Muuse’s Top Ten Most Promising Designers. Soon after, he was selected as a finalist in the ELLE Fashion Next fashion show, an exclusive runway presentation featuring the next generation of New York fashion. Most recently, Daniel was recognized by the CFDA “for his outstanding achievement in Womenswear Design”, and awarded a member of the CFDA+. Daniel’s bold and innovative designs have spread internationally and rapidly garnered significant brand recognition and industry following.
