I'm a Native of South Carolina I am good at creative design. I dabble in fashion but don't consider myself a master at it. I've always had a passion for fashion but never had the family support or the right people to help guide me in the direction I needed to be in. I've tried the college thing , only after five semesters decided that it wasn't the rout for me at the time. I'm an athlete played basketball all throughout school. I have an amazing career logistics shipping and processing. I'm a shareholder and love what I do. Fashion is my 2nd biggest passion.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Danyell. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I love the outdoors, nature, travelling, and sports. I love to hike. Music is my escape from the chaos of everyday chaos If that makes sense. I'm a gay stud who's shy but quite confident. Just a happy individual who has dreams of becoming a fashionista.
Danyell, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Fashion Stylist?
My aspiration in life is just to be the best individual at whatever I do in life, to give no less than 110% in anything I do. My passion is for fashion. I started getting serious only recently; I kept hearing from friends and others who I would come in contact with telling me how come I'm not modelling. So that and encouragement form my wife made me realize I had what it took to take this where I need it to be
Who is your inspiration in life Danyell? How do you keep inspired?
MY inspiration is my brother who I mimicked all my high school days and beyond. He has a since of style that I loved and wanted to be like him. I keep staying inspired by reminding myself just how close I am to accomplish what I was passionate about.
We all make mistakes Danyell; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Fashion Stylist; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I haven't reached that platform yet, but hopefully, that issue would be addressed properly.
Danyell, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Fashion Stylist, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
I would prioritize accordingly, making sure that every client is given the best customer service while remaining professional and learn what each client's different needs are, and prioritize their needs.
Please tell us Danyell, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Fashion Stylist?
Having photo shoots, makeup sessions booked, I've learned to stay on top and keep communication with my photographer, to ensure prompt service, and top quality service.
Danyell, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I needed a day off for a photo shoot, and I didn't have this particular day off. So when the time came for my boss to ask his associates to volunteer for the overtime, I signed up for it. Stayed late a few days after schedule, and when it came time to ask for this day off. I was granted it because of my previous willingness to volunteer made it work in my favour.
Danyell, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Fashion Stylist. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest moment as a fashion model, was when model citizen left a comment under one of my pics telling me that I had what it took to get featured. At that very moment, I just knew I had what it took.
Danyell, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
When I was able just to be me, be creative with my style and have no limits or boundaries. That was the most exciting for me.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Fashion Stylist?
Stick to your dreams, never settle and always go hard for what you believe in. That you control your future and giving up isn't an option. With the right team and persistence, you'll achieve your goals.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Of course, collaborations are always welcomed. Street style collaborations, urban, casual, are all fine. I'm always open to new projects.
