The annual Danier design challenge puts the mind of aspiring young designers to the test in a way that many students can only dream of. Chief Marketing Officer Elizabeth Margles spoke with Trend Hunter about the challenges of a designer, the Danier design challenge, being a young designer and the creative process.
Danier is a behemoth in the fashion industry. With such strong presence in not only leather but fashion as a whole, it’s only right that the brand keeps its eye on not only what’s current, but what’s next. This ideology extends past just the clothes and into the next crop of designer.
With the Danier design challenge, Ryerson students are given the opportunity to design a legitimate piece for Danier to be sold in some of their stores. If you’re looking to be a professional, the challenge isn’t just a competition, but a true opportunity.
