DANYELLE’s Divergence

The contrast between the fast fashion industry and the slow fashion movement is like night and day and proves an apparent gap throughout the clothing manufacturing niche, putting unfashionable truths on display. The harsh reality is that the fast fashion industry’s production surplus afflicts the earth in major ways like sending microplastics from waste bins into waterways that lead into our oceans while ever-changing fashion trends cause a worldwide contribution to landfills. With its simplistic and solely eco-conscious concept, slow fashion exists to combat fast fashion practices and instill an ethical approach to clothing production by honoring the planet’s resources and the people required to manufacture them into top-quality products.

According to a report from The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the fast fashion industry is responsible for wasting 12% of textiles within production procedures, recycling less than 1% of materials to create reusable attire, and leaving 25% of clothing items unsold. The objective for DANYELLE as a slow-fashion footwear brand is to pursue a zero-waste production method and execute a made to order process to savor all utilized materials, preserve the earth’s welfare, and uphold human dignity in the manufacturing and distribution stages.

When Danielle first entered the fashion industry as an emerging artist, she encountered a series of struggles, a primary obstacle being the pressure to mass-produce. She soon discovered all the market trends were entirely dictated by fashion influencers and social media buzz. Rather than remaining mentally, physically, and financially strained as she strived to satisfy fluctuating fashion shifts, Danielle decided to define her brand by slow fashion standards as a sense of fashionable freedom for her creativity as well as the earth’s environment and its inhabitants. The DANYELLE brand identifies slow fashion as an art form, a connection to the earth and its elements, and a sustainable solution to fashion production that honors human craftsmanship. Slow fashion is clothing manufacturing, made simple. It brings the production process back to the basics by relying on human-inspired inventiveness as it treasures the natural creative design of the creation process’s every step.

To all my friends and family that know me as Danielle, I am also a creative, a designer, a fearless visionary, lover of the earth, its elements, and people, and a proud brand owner of THE DANYELLE BRAND. Much more than a simple logo or a mere trademark for my distinct footwear, my brand is a symbol of what is possible when you believe in yourself and never cease to dream. My brand is a beam of inspiration, encouragement, and empowerment for the planet and humanity – it is a reflection of me, my values, and my heart for the world to become better through compassion and genuine acts of kindness. 

Through sincere sacrifice, endless hours of creation, and consistent collaboration with my team THE DANYELLE BRAND has become reality. Since September of 2020, I have been actively establishing my business and brand in Jalisco, Mexico. I have religiously devoted myself to launching DANYELLE as an eco-friendly footwear brand created to support sustainable fashion and underprivileged communities. With my signature TRAVEL SLYDES made of genuine and cactus leather materials, a made to order production process, and 50% of every sale donated directly to my brand’s partnering foundations who work to uplift the earth and humanity, DANYELLE is dedicated to making sensational change for the greater good of all.  

The brand’s objective is to flip the fast fashion scene with a slow fashion approach, savoring every element of earth to achieve a zero-waste world, one step at a time. For me, it’s not the dollar, it’s the difference – my brand exists to suit consumers’ styles while enabling them with opportunities to give back so others in need can benefit. Through DANYELLE’s website, I can educate consumers on the conventional fashion industry, consciousness consumerism, and the positive differences being made by the brand’s worldwide collaborations with extraordinary non-profit organizations that help the earth and humankind.  

Amid the global pandemic, such trials transformed my life into a catalyst for change, turning my many passions into an incredible career. In the middle of all the chaos, I refused to let doubt or fear swarm my mind and mission. I chose to combine all my experience and condition it into knowledge, a promising path I have proudly walked since the initial launch of my brand nearly a decade ago, holding onto dear life just to witness my ideas blossom for the best.
