As a child Daniel had dreamed of travelling the world designing beautiful clothes and accessories. He enrolled on a leather design course in his home city of Cracow. Once qualified, he left Poland searching for inspiration and opportunities.
The first stop was the Fashion capital, Paris, and later Madrid. His days were spent working in retail but any free time was dedicated to creating his own designs.
After visiting a friend in England, he decided to relocate to Manchester. Working long shifts in hospitality and retail meant he could save enough money to pay for his designs to be professionally made by the team of people he had met on his travels.
These started the brand DJD fashion (Daniel Jacob Dali fashion) and soon his designs started getting worldwide attention. Requests for interviews and bespoke designs followed. His designs have been worn by many well-known personalities and have been worn in music videos.
Since 2009 , Daniel has spent half of the year residing in Ibiza and the other half traveling. His collections have been photographed in Miami, England, Vietnam, New York, Barcelona, Poland and his beloved home Ibiza.
As well as designing for his own brand, Daniel offers advice as a personal stylist and is a regular columnist for a newspaper in Poland, where he shares his views on fashion, politics, and celebrities.
