Danielle Everine

American-born fashion designer Danielle Everine lives and works in the hinterland of Minneapolis, MN. From a formal art & design background, her work is heavily conceptual while existing in a context of fabric and form. Displays of female fortitude and strength dominate the work. As inspiration, she draws from films, books, adventures and day dreams. Desiring to dress modern day heroines, she often references classic muses that embody beauty and grace as well as independence and strength of character.

Aesthetically, classic utilitarian female elements are blended into a single look or line. "I love heavy wools, linens and waxed cottons fashioned into pretty silhouettes and sheers and silks tailored into menswear inspired looks." Interested in the history and craft of fabric making, she often designs textiles from the yarn level. Knitting and weaving on antique machinery, dying and printing using age-old techniques. "I am interested in a new definition of beauty. In contrast to the glamorous veneer that has been valued as the epitome of fashion for so long, I find real people and real adventure truly fun and beautiful.”

Danielle is an accomplished leader in design, seasoned event producer, expert in and advocate for domestic apparel manufacturing and is dedicated to human rights across the globalized industry of fashion.

Danielle has worked on many varied projects and shown her work in many different venues. Among the many are:
