Daniel Laukat is an up-and-coming art-activist turned fashion-designer based out of Sacramento California. He studied and worked in fine arts for many years before delving into fashion design. He has sold art in Lake Tahoe and Sacramento with a focus on activism, raising $1,000 for the Heifer Foundation. With those art sales he provided a struggling African community with a goat to help provide for their families and friends. He turned his passion for design into eco-activism by starting an online vintage store, where he began to create and sell original up-cycled fashion designs as art-to-wear.
After getting his degree in fashion design, Daniel began creating one-of-a-kind bridal gowns from recycled materials turning the past into the future. Each garment he creates is hand-crafted from heirloom laces and rare fabrics. His design aesthetic is whimsical and the garments appear to be lost in time, with elements of classical design redefined by modern clean lines.

Working with Daniel to create the perfect look for my, ahem our, special day, has been a delight. His designs are so unique and amazing, choosing which to wear may be a formidable challenge, but I feel so relaxed knowing I have a beautiful, handmade one-of-a-kind frock. My man's ideas and mine can clash, but we found a way to blend them together. This being my second wedding, I desire a more mature look and the process of working directly with the designer is hands-down the way to go, as my last wedding dress was "designer" but I never met her, and did my business at a massive dress store. Daniel has amazing, intuitive design ideas and I adore how responsible it is to up-cycle textiles and give them new life in a way you'd never know they had an old one.Sent on 03/08/2016
One more impressive aspect about Daniel is that he can dress each woman who desires in a piece of wearable art to be enjoyed many times over, not just a bride.
