2021 Best Clothing Designer

Daniela Corte

When the pandemic hit, Daniela Corte quickly went into survival mode, shutting down her Newbury Street boutique and moving the business to her Back Bay residence. But her hibernation didn’t last long: Just six months later, the Argentine-born women’s clothing designer managed to reinvent her shop at the Mandarin Oriental Boston, dress Vice President Kamala Harris’s sister, Maya, for the inauguration, and produce a sold-out, day-long fashion seminar. Needless to say, Corte is back (as if she ever left).
