About Diana Mitchell
Diana Mitchell has been sewing since childhood, taught by her mother and grandmother, both of whom made clothes for the family. Diana went on to earn her bachelor’s degree from University of California, Davis, Art Studio program, focusing on sewn sculptures. She later completed a patternmaking program in San Francisco.
While directing an afterschool center for children, Diana recognized an unfilled market niche: comfortable women’s wear that is suited for work with kids and presentable in front of their parents. Thus, in 2011, DDCC was born. Diana uses her late grandfather’s architectural drafting table to create all patterns and is inspired by his legacy. She often likens patternmaking to architecture: 2D designs blossom into beautiful 3D works of art upon completion.
DDCC, Diana’s company, designs and manufactures socially conscious, flattering activewear. Diana’s vision is to bring versatility to today’s busy woman – whether she is exercising or going out with friends. DDCC’s staple item is the hoodie, marrying a fitted blazer and a favorite sweat shirt. DDCC also features women’s tops, dresses and accessories. All garments are manufactured in San Francisco.
