“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do” – Rumi
Danielle Nicole Holyk’s personal philosophy combines a love of quality, innovation, and technology. Her journalistic eye captures each design with an engineered perspective. The importance of the symbiotic relationship between the designer and client keeps Danielle’s design intention true to the end user.
The Vancouver technology industry inspired Danielle to design an impactful line of menswear. The simplicity of true product functionality influenced her design and development process. Danielle’s debut line, CNNCTD, combines the efficiency of computerized pattern drafting with her knowledge of fabric innovation.
Danielle’s design passion started in High School, learning to sew on her mother’s vintage Cortina machine. Awarded the Top Student in Fashion Design at J.N. Burnett Secondary, Holyk entered Kwantlen’s Fashion Design and Technology Program with a solid foundation in pattern drafting and sewing. She graduated from Kwantlen Polytechnic University with a BA in Applied Design in May 2013.
“Growing up in a large family taught me the value of patience and teamwork. Now I not only dress my little sister, but also Vancouver residents”.
