Daniel Vosovic was in trouble. On returning to the Parsons workroom from Mood in Social Scene, he discovered that he had a big problem on his hands. He had found a beautiful geometric print that he planned to pair with a black stretch satin for his Nicky Hilton dress. The only problem was that the black satin turned out to be chocolate brown instead. So he started scrounging around.
Marla and Kara happened to have the very fabric he needed to complete his design, and he was hanging his hopes on their leftovers. So he waited, and waited, and waited. At the end of Day 1, he knew there would be no black satin. Time was running out and with his back against the wall he had to "make it work".
Even though he was coming off his first win in Team Lingerie, Daniel V really hadn't impressed us much up to this point. The 24-year old Michigan native had shown great leadership skills and came up with a good collaborative effort for the win, but he had been flying under the radar with his solo designs. With the pressure at a point that would make many designers crumble, he had this to say: "You can sit there and complain about it or try to be creative and think of another solution. So, I just let the design process revolve around this great print..." The result was nothing short of stunning.
He created a sexy, sophisticated silhouette with the print that had his model Rebecca Holliday rocking the runway. This is the dress that made us all sit up and take notice of Daniel Vosovic the designer. His cool, calm head and poise under pressure that he displayed throughout Season 2 belies his age. It also carried him straight to the tent at Bryant Park. The design may not have won this challenge, but it landed him in the runner-up position on BPR's Top 5 Looks for Season 2. Congratulations Daniel!
