Who is Daniel Meistre and what do you do?
Im a Fashion Designer who received his Bachelors degree in 2007 from DSSA in Johannesburg. I prefer the term Style Designer, as Ralph Lauren said ‘Style is a very personal thing, Fashion is over very quickly.’
How would you define your style of fashion?
People say its sophisticated and futuristic.
What inspires you and your work?
I enjoy experimenting with shapes until I get combinations that work. I also think a lot about movement, how the garment will be used and how the cut sits on the body.
Films like Star Wars and period epics, music, art, skateboarding these are also points of reference.
Being a finalist in SAFW?
The competition was a great eye opener. It was great to mix with fellow designers and the team at SA FASHION WEEK. It taught me a lot about the business of fashion and my roll as a designer.
What are you currently working on?
A business plan for future prospects is in the works. Im producing patterns for a CMT, as well as designing for a new range and planning for production for my range to go to stores.
