Danielle Nicole handbags fuse runway inspiration and real life accessibility
in a feminine, chic and contemporary way. The brand represents a fresh twist on classic
styling and incorporates detailed custom hardware and exclusive materials from all around the world.
Danielle Nicole was founded by Designer and Creative Director Danielle DiFerdinando, who began her journey in the fashion industry at the age of 18. While attending the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, her passion led her to study abroad in Europe where she apprenticed with several major high-end design houses. Upon returning, Danielle put her new insider's view of the design and manufacturing process to work by designing, constructing and, of course, wearing her own handbags.
It was during her internship at Bergdorf Goodman that her talent was first noticed. The cosmetic buyer was impressed by Danielle's work and asked her to create a line of cosmetic bags for the store. The rest, as they say, is history. Before long, Danielle was designing complete leather collections for Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale's and Lane Crawford.
Danielle's incredible journey continues. The brand is currently sold in major retailers and specialty boutiques all over the world, and has attracted a growing following of celebrities and fashion trendsetters.
Never taking her success for granted, Danielle is committed to giving back. She serves as a member on the Board of Associates for Ronald McDonald House New York, and has volunteered and helped raise funds for notable charities like the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, House of Ruth, the Lupus Foundation, and American Heart Association.
