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 one of the top design schools 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, designing, constructing and of course, wearing, her own handbags. It was during her internship at Bergdorf Goodman 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 gained a following of celebrities and stylish women (such as Rachel Zoe, Olivia Palermo and Oprah) with its sophisticated and uniquely detailed designs.
