Daniel Mofor is the founder of Don Morhpy, a Dallas-based menswear brand that was founded in 2014.

The Cameroonian native searches the world over for bold new fashion trends. He was nominated by Fashion Group International of Dallas as a “Rising Star” and in 2019 the group awarded him the Award of Excellence.

What I Do: “I am the founder and lead designer at Don Morphy, an award-winning, custom menswear brand based in Dallas.”

Style Icon: “My style icon is Tom Ford. He is innovative, a visionary—all the while being classic and unapologetically bold with his designs.”

On The Job: “At Don Morphy, we love colors and bold prints and patterns. So as a designer for Don Morphy, and knowing that I am my brand when I walk out in the streets, I continue to wear bold, eye-catching colors, vibrant patterns, and those statement pieces that are often really great conversation starters via my street style.”

Inspiration: “My travels and my African roots inspire my style. We have a lot of bold patterns and colors in Africa, and I’ve tried to marry those influences into the products we offer with the Don Morphy label.”

Style Defined: “My style is best described as being clean, bold, and colorful. Some men are afraid of prints and colors, but not me; it’s the true foundation of how I get dressed every day.”

Fashion Essentials: “I never leave home without my Sun Shades.”

Go-To Look: “When in thought, I wear blue pants, a white shirt, and any color jacket to pop the look.”

Accessories: “If I am wearing a tie, it will match the color of my pants. I also wear contrasting pocket squares with my pants because it looks better than having the same color.”

Weekend Look: “I absolutely love wearing white V-neck T-shirts on the weekends and in my downtime.”
