· Dana designs menswear in unique silhouettes and various shades. Based in New York, this Canadian native focuses on several aspects while designing her line. When asked during an interview what the key elements mattered to her most, she responded, “I’ve come to accept that I really don’t like designing with seams or lines. I’d say my work is more defined by texture, color, finishing, the overall feeling of the garment. So I try to develop those elements as much as possible.”
