Desiree Daniels was born and raised, in San Diego, CA.
The collection, originally inspired by the constructivist artist Naum Gabo, is a study of tension and suspension. Gabo creates sculptures using organic-shaped wooden frames with thin steel wires wrapped through and around them. The overall shapes within the frames are geometric and translucent. This inspiration evolved into a study of suspension bridges and the concept of tension and suspension.
Modern forms including sculpture, architecture and painting inspire me. I begin a design by thinking about the shapes and concepts behind an inspiration. Then I form a fabric manipulation and drape on the stand. I take photos, analyze them and sketch. I think about different visual details and use scale and placement on the body to differ them.
