    Daniel Drak

    Profile

    Daniel (he/him) comes to Parsons from X (Ryerson) University in Toronto. Working with X University’s School of Fashion and School of Creative Industries, Daniel taught at the intersection of design thinking, fashion, activism and queerness while also leading major curriculum development and management projects. In his practice, Daniel focuses on social interventions through experience design and live events (particularly fashion shows) and has more recently begun looking at the relationship between fashion, identity and video games and the social and business potential therein. Daniel’s personal projects prioritize the empowerment of diverse queer communities in acts of resistance and queer world making. Having graduated from MS Strategic Design and Management (‘16), Daniel is excited to come back to Parsons and continue to explore New York with his husband and dog.
