Daniel Lee is an English fashion designer who is popular for working and rebuilding fashion brands like Bottega Veneta. Daniel comes from a normal working-class family. His father is a mechanic and his mother is an office worker. He graduated from Saint Martins College of Arts and Designs. After graduating he worked with some of the top leading fashion designers Donna Karan and Phoebe Philo.

After that, he was appointed by Bottega Veneta to work as a creative director. Bottega a brand that is famous for its minimalistic/simplistic sense of fashion that makes logo-less fashion products needed someone who could design products that could align with the company’s vision and Daniel was perfectly suited to that criteria.

Joining Burberry

After taking an exit from Bottega Veneta, Daniel took over Burberry as its new CCO (Chief Creative Officer). This is the 1st step in Burberry’s new CEO Jonathan Akeroyd’s master plan to grow and increase Burberry’s business. And choosing Daniel could prove one of the best decisions for Burberry as Daniel previously helped Bottega grow into a popular brand and his experience and skills would definitely benefit Burberry. Burberry’s CEO Jonathan Akeroyd believes in Daniel’s exceptional talent and his modern sense of fashion, and he believes Daniel’s presence would help the company to achieve its vision. Burberry has never been really successful with women’s wear and with the recent appointment of Daniel Lee in the company, the company’s future looks really bright.

Burberry’s previous designer Tisci whose street-savvy designs helped the company to get popular among young customers. But his formal wear designs for women failed in the market. Burberry’s highest source of revenue comes from its sales of leather products, its recent revenue has grown by 6%, compared to other market leaders like LVMH which had revenue growth of 20%. Compared to Burberry’s revenue growth in the past couple of years, this percentage will be considered healthy growth for Burberry.

With a visionary CEO like Jonathan Akeroyd and a talented designer like Daniel Lee, i am sure the company will head in the right direction and Daniel would be a key element in that process.
