13: Danielle DiFerdinando of Danielle Nicole Went from Fast Food to High Fashion (+Sally Shoutout)


Say yes, then figure it out. It’s the advice you hear from so many successful entrepreneurs, but Danielle DiFerdinando actually ran with it. Here’s what happened: while still a student at FIT in New York, she founded Danielle Nicole after a chance meeting in an elevator got her a deal at Bergdorf Goodman. She went on to sell her handbags in Neiman Marcus and many others before pivoting to create an affordable, yet stylish line of vegan leather accessories that have made their way from Oprah’s events to Rihanna’s arms and onto HSN.com.

Hear Danielle talk about the surprising training ground that prepped her for fashion success – she has her dad to thank! – and how she has incorporated giving back into her company’s recent campaigns.

But wait, there’s more!
