About Me

Hi! I'm Danni, a fashion design graduate from Nottingham Trent

Danni Harris is a self-motivated individual who thrives on challenge and the chance to push herself creatively. Her passion lies with her innovative design style and promoting inclusivity. Whilst studying she was selected as the NTU submission for the Fashion Innovation award at Graduate Fashion Week.

As a designer, I am very passionate about the fulfilment of inclusivity within the industry which is heavily reflected throughout my final project: "perfect imperfections". I aim to encourage others to design with the same outlook, to praise our ‘flaws’ and celebrate the rise of diversity in fashion. I also have keen interests in fashion styling and love being hands on within my photoshoots for my collections.

INSPIRATION

My initial inspiration was derived from the concept of women's bodily insecurities.

As a woman living in western contemporary society, it is apparent that toxic, unattainable beauty standards have negatively impacted our self-worth. I aim to empower women to feel confident in their own skin by demonstrating that our 'imperfections' are subjective, and our worth is not defined by societal pressures or others perceptions of beauty. By including the silhouettes of bodily insecurities into my designs, I aspire to prove that what society classes as unattractive, I can present as admirable.

The lack of diverse, positive, body representation within the industry is what led me to create the work that continues to inspire me. Due to the increasing rate of women with body dissatisfaction, I felt the responsibility to create a conceptual collection to represent their bodies in a more positive light, at first glance my garments are innovative/current but with deeper understanding of my inspiration, the viewer is able to realise that their "imperfections are perfect."

MY WORK

PORTFOLIOS

DETAIL

I directed and styled my photoshoot with accessories that perfected the aesthetic of my collection.

As a creative I am also interested in fashion styling therefore I wanted to capture the aesthetic of my brand and my collection perfectly. I decided to incorporate sunglasses into both looks because they encapsulated the modern, high-end streetwear style I was aiming for. I kept my accessories monochromatic with neutral tones to further portray my inclusive, skin-toned colour pallet.

"Insecurity kills all that is beautiful."
