Danae is a womenswear brand founded in 2022 by Faidra Tzedakis, who has worked for companies such as Sandy Liang and R13. Tzedakis immigrated to the US from Rhodes, Greece with her parents to fulfill her lifelong dream of going to the Fashion Institute of Technology and working in the Fashion Industry in New York City in 2015. She decided to start her label, named after her mother Danai Tzedaki, with the mission to design and create something that would not only showcase the beauty of other women that she has always admired, but would also create a community that gives back to her island and country. 

Every garment is currently made in New York, either at the family owned  factories in Manhattan's Fashion District, or at the Danae office. Our intention with every production, is bringing fair wages and craftsmanship first and to support the ecosystem of the historic Fashion District in New York.
