Daniel Roseberry was born in 1985 in Plano, Texas. The son of a priest and an artist-mother, he and his three siblings were raised in a deeply religious household, and he even considered entering the ministry himself; indeed, after high school, he traveled the world on Christian service missions to Hawaii, Jordan, Pakistan, and various parts of Israel. Upon returning to the United States, he enrolled in New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, which he left after two years to begin working at Thom Browne, the New York-based tailoring house.
Over his ten years at Thom Browne, which eventually grew to encompass both men’s and women’s collections, Roseberry rose to become the head of design. In 2019, he took the job of artistic director of Schiaparelli, the storied Parisian couture house. During his tenure, Roseberry has become known for resurrecting some of the Maison’s most beloved and influential codes and iconography, while paying homage to its founder, Elsa Schiaparelli’s, love of Surrealism; at the same time, he has subverted many of those same codes, contributing a new aesthetic vocabulary with his frequent use of gold jewelry and hardware, repurposed denim, and molded leather and metal breastplates and body parts. Like Schiaparelli herself, who was known for her technical innovations, Roseberry is particularly interested in experimenting with new or unlikely fabrics, and exploding the idea of what couture can–or should–be.
