The self-described “late bloomer” in the world of fashion pursued the industry when he moved to London at the age of 19. In just a few short years, Daniel has carved out a unique sartorial space as an award-winning designer and creative director. “If I’d said at 14, ‘I want be a fashion designer,’ I just would’ve got the shit beaten out of me at school,” Daniel admits in their conversation.
Growing up in a small town in the Northwest of England, a career as a fashion designer didn’t feel like an option for him.
