Danielle currently juggles several roles as a freelance fashion designer, sample maker, alterations specialist, and accessories designer… just to name a few. Always up for a challenge, Danielle loves brainstorming ideas for new and existing garments, especially if they involve upcycled materials. Her talent has been enjoyed by fashion industry leaders and celebrities for whom she has created custom pieces and executed intensive alterations. She shares her latest work and the stories behind them for her increasing online audience on Instagram at @DanielleAmatoApparel and her blog on danielleamatoapparel.com.
As a New York City suburbanite, Danielle enjoys both the beauty and solitude offered by her hometown while also having quick access to the energy and vibe of the city, which provides a never- ending source of creativity and inspiration. Hooked since her first sewing class in 5th grade, fashion and design have continued to be her central loves, finding their way into every aspect of her life.
