Fashion Designer – Daphne Benzaquen

Daphne Benzaquen

I am a fashion designer, designing apparel, handbags, and accessories.

My typical day

  • Email responses
  • Trend analysis to learn about upcoming trends, colors, textures.
  • The design process starts over a year prior to the launch of the product.
  • I draw from inspiration, choose a color palette, analyze fabrics, wear, feel, stretch, fit and choose fabrics and mixes for each collection then design the product itself
  • I then create a 3D paper model of the piece of a paper pattern if apparel to ensure the sizing, placement of accents, hardware, etc.
  • Submit measurements, tech pack, and in some cases pattern to manufacturer for sample creation
  • Sample analysis, and requesting changes
  • Marketing promotion of the launch
  • Order fulfillment


  • I am able to be the final decision maker when it comes to what gets produced and what falls short
  • I am able to use my creativity to create new, unique pieces and see them go from paper to 3D concept
  • I am able to learn about upcoming fashion trends and releases as part of my job!
  • Sharing my inspiration through my designs and brand is very special and something, not all careers include


  • It is very difficult to be sure that people will love a piece, sometimes you have to go with your gut
  • Picking the colors is the hardest part for me, never 100% sure that all the colors will be loved by many
  • Experiencing creativity blocks is hard to overcome, there is a lot of pressure on yourself to keep creating but at times you can just run out of inspiration and ideas!
