A luxury collection for the modern voyager, Danielle Fichera proves travelling doesnt have to come at the expense of our planet. Crafting fashion-forward resort wear from Italian Organic cotton, this small-batch line makes a more sustainable option when vacationing. Produced locally, this elegant line supports womens charities too – for pieces you can truly relax in when wearing.
Danielle Fichera – a native New Yorker – fell in love with design in the South of France, but returned home to seek the same sense of colour and pattern but in the up-most quality. Soon, her eponymous label was born seeking to marry quality with style.
Locally produced in New York City’s clothing district, the brand inspects their factories monthly and all labourers are paid fairly, placing a minimum age requirement on all of their models.
The fabric is carefully considered, heavily focussing on high-quality cotton from the esteemed Italian mill Albini Group. Choosing to only work with sustainable suppliers, the Albini Group continues to invest in offering job opportunities to women while being mindful of their environmental impact.
The fabrics themselves are built around Albini fabrics, which require less water to create. Their finishing touches – such as BerBrand mother of pearl buttons – are meticulously researched during sourcing, and unlike most luxury ready-to-wear Danielles pieces do not require dry-cleaning due to their composition.
When it comes to seasonal fashion, Danielle Fichera believes in patterns youll wear again and again – utilising their favourite and best-selling materials and styles each season to avoid excess fabric waste.
The brand also contributes to charities that are close to the brands heart, such as New York-based charity Glam4Good, and Finn2Finn that supports animal rights. For 2019, they are focussing on environmental charities to further their impact in that area. The brand also encourages its staff to volunteer and support causes that matter to them.
