There's nothing like a few well-chosen leather accessories to add an edgy flair to an otherwise conventional look. This edge exudes influence and power by remaining ahead of the curve; Danier Leather, one of the world's leading leather designers, knows this, and chose six of the top influencers in Canada to design their very own Danier leather jackets.

Trend Hunter's own President Shelby Walsh was one of those lucky six who got to visit the Danier studio to personalize her dream jacket. While there, she and the Trend Hunter video team sat down with Zophia Urbanowicz, Danier's Senior Creative Designer, to chat about what's hot in the fashion industry and how Danier manages to remain on the cutting edge of fashion.

Leather is very different from other fabrics, Urbanowicz points out. Instead of just having color and texture, as with traditional cottons and silks, leather involves color, texture, feel and smell -- it involves all of the senses. This allows designers a lot of liberty to think creatively about how to manipulate this unique and incredibly versatile fabric.

If you want to channel your influential attitude through your wardrobe, a sleek and high-fashion Danier leather jacket is the perfect way to make sure everyone knows that you're the one to ask about what's buzzing, and how to stay on the cutting edge of cool.
