Well. So here you are. M’ name is Daniel Shapiro. I am an artist who yearns for creativity in life. I am a student living in Seattle for the moment. Attending the one of the preppy of high schools in Seattle. But I wouldn’t be who I am if it weren’t for that school. Good things can come from obscure places. I stumbled upon art & fashion back in 2008, and since then have grown and dabbled in it. I love it. I live in one of the most art filled cities in the country… and I don’t take enough advantage of it. I love literature… especially fiction. I also have a strong admiration for the theater/film industry and its crazy antics. I wish that Grace Coddington (creative director of Vogue) was my life mentor. Inside and out, that woman is stunning at what she does. My favorite artist is Marc Chagall, the man was spectacular in all ways, he was a surrealist and quite the dreamer. Wish I could have met him. My favorite designers are Rodarte (the Mulleavy sisters), Vivienne Westwood, and Marc Jacobs. I don’t even wear their clothing(someday I will though), but it is their art direction that has grabbed me. Master of the Universe has indeed so redeemed me, and blessed me with immense gifts. Wouldn’t be here without Him! If you have read this far, I owe either a big thanks, or a huge punch in the face. Thanks! Enjoy the rants.
Fashion is the amma to survive the reality of everyday life, I don’t think you could do away with it. It would be like doing away with civilization. -Bill Cunningham
