Project Runway Season 2 Designer, Daniel Vosovic, Enters CFDA Incubator


Daniel Vosovic talks about Project Runway and his new opportunity to join the CFDA Incubator program.

A highlight:  

Can you walk us through what happened between Project Runway and now? 

 I was on the show four days after college, so it was my first real job ... When it came time that the show was done, that the dust had settled, I knew that I had to make a decision and try to use the exposure to jump into something — even though I knew I wasn't ready — and maybe just try and spin it into something positive. But I felt like that had a very short shelf life, so I made a very conscious decision to take a step back and say, You still have to learn about this, you still have to really develop this part of design and part of your business. So that's what I started to do. I went back into the grind, which was very weird to go into interviews when people had seen me on the TV show, but I jumped from big companies to small companies, some creative director positions, some very lowly assistant positions, and I did that for four and a half years. And all behind the scenes, I started to build up my infrastructure. So before I even had my company, before it officially launched, I had my legal team and a financial team and a proper business plan.
