Danelyn Rillera has been designing professionally for over a decade. Getting her start in her hometown of Baguio City, Philippines as in-house designer for an accessory brand, she began exploring her love of the many aspects of women’s fashion at an early age.
After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, CA, she worked in Los Angeles for a few internationally-known fashion companies. Construction techniques that she acquired from the complex task of designing corsets and shapewear have influenced her to move in an aesthetic direction that is ultimately about designing to highlight a woman’s contours. Timeless, sophisticated and finished with details strategically placed in all the right areas is Danelyn Rillera’s design philosophy.
In 2009, she ventured into reviving her childhood aspirations to create a ready to wear line in the Philippines. This was when she launched Daria Clothing.Each Daria garment is produced with the goal to make a woman feel and look her absolute best, no matter what age or body type she is.
