The Danilo Gabrielli brand is a high end fashion label founded in NYC by Italian designer, Danilo Gabrielli, and is based in London. Born and raised in Porto Santo Stefano, Monte Argentario – a small island off the West coast of Tuscany, Italy. Danilo graduated from the Accademia Pistoiese in Rome, Italy and achieved a duel degree in Fashion and Costume Design.
He moved to New York to pursue his career in the Fashion Industry and after many years of designing for high end labels, he is excited to launch his new line.
Danilo Gabrielli’s mission is to design beautiful, timeless designs for women that allow them to feel elegant and confident while being guided by a combination of rustic Italian beauty and classic luxury.
Danilo Gabrielli’s AW13 collection was inspired by the medieval period of 1200 – 1300.
Sovereignty was coveted during this period. The clothing and fashion during this Medieval era of the Middle Ages was dominated and highly influenced by the Kings and Queens of the era. It was heavily influenced by the introduction of fine silks, satins, precious stones, gold, silver, brocades and other expensive material only available by law to the upper class women and were adorned on women’s clothing.
Danilo has created this modern version of this era with richly decorated pieces, massive belts,
dresses with tight bodices, leather corsets, flowing capes and constructed coats. His ‘Glam Gothic’ collection is designed to make women feel strong and confident.
