On this first day of January, 2019 I am excited for the launch of my new Daniel Cascardo "Art Inspired Collection" featuring original prints on contemporary fashion, home goods and accessories. This blog will give you an opportunity to learn more about my inspiration and influences, form growing up in an Italian American family inspired by Italy's rich culture, art, architecture, cities, beaches and landscapes to the fashion of iconic Italian designers like Giorgio Armani, Gianni Versace, Gucci and especially Emilio Pucci. We'll explore the psychedelic, flower power, free spirited culture of the 1960's and 70's with Peter Max, Andy Warhol, the Beatles and all the groovy fashion found on TV shows like the Mod Squad, Partridge Family and Rowen & Martins Laugh-In. We'll take a trip back to 1991 when I launched the "Tatoons" clothing line showcasing my original designs and graphics that were sold through JCPenney retail outlets (maybe some retro fashion from that collection will be available on a limited bases). Regardless of the direction and content of this site, I wish you the best New Year with peace, love and good health.
