“Proudly designed and made in London”
Originally hailing from Leicestershire, Danielle Foster moved to London when she was just 18 to study at the London College of Fashion, during her studies her talent was recognised by Charlie le Mindu and she was asked to collaborate for his SS11 catwalk collection. Since then Danielle has joined forces with many other designers; she conceived a range of beautiful minimal jewellery with maker Jessie Harris, was asked to create a commission for the O2 Arena as well as developing a range of accessories with Charlie May.
Danielle finished her studies and went on to launch her eponymous accessories label a few years after; her cutting edge designs quickly developed a ‘cult’ status. The collections are proudly designed and made in London, providing affordable high end products with a slick, luxury aesthetic created with sophistication in mind to form cleverly conceptualized ranges which focuses on texture, clean lines, and structured boxy shapes.
Pieces are cutting edge with a strong contemporary aesthetic, fusing modern silhouettes with traditional crafting techniques to devise a refined range that’s elegant and current. Functionality is at the heart of all collections, offering optional straps to leather tote bags and clutches – allowing the styles to be changed and worn as either statement shoulder bags or hand held styles, we also see removable zip pockets throughout the range that offer adaptability for the wearer.
Born and raised in rural Leicestershire, Danielle’s bold vision and creativity has been influenced from her ability to draw inspiration from her surroundings, looking at everyday objects, minimalism, graphic lines and box shapes, these are all running themes throughout the ranges. The collection’s all feature the ‘Danielle Foster’ branded hardware, removable pockets and trademark ‘raw edge’ design.
The brand is moving from strength to strength with new exciting stockists such as Shopbop and Coggles. Danielle’s work has also been supported by prestigious magazine titles such as Vogue.com, Harpers Bazaar, Stylist and Grazia to name a few, the designer was also invited to show her SS16 range at LFW with a positive response to the collection.
