Born in Canada and raised in England, Noble graduated from the London College of Fashion. His first job in the industry was as apprentice to Bill Gibb. He later established his own brand in London, Danny Noble.
In 1980, Noble was recruited by American designer Albert Nipon to design and develop a new sportswear line, Collectibles. Two years later, Noble launched his own brand,Danny Noble. His dramatic and whimsical sportswear collections took America by storm and received accolades from his peers and the media with prominent placements in magazines such as Vogue, Elle, Glamour and the covers of Women's Wear Daily. He was recognized for his talents with Dupont's An American Original Award with Michael Kors. Noble was also acknowledged by the late John Duka of the New York Times for establishing the contemporary market in America along with Norma Kamali and Ann Pinkerton. Danny received a nomination for the coveted Coty Award for womenswear with Adrienne Vittadini and Stephen Sprouse. He was also selected and honored by the Osaka Chamber of Commerce in Japan with Carolina Herrera and Geoffrey Beene to represent American designers for the Osaka International Fashion Festival.
Noble has managed a multitude of projects encompassing global sourcing and international marketing in diverse arenas including intimate apparel, women's sportswear, menswear and footwear.
In 2000, Noble launched his collection of luxe sleep and loungewear which was immediately picked up by department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Harrods as well as upscale boutiques from coast to coast.
In 2005, his popularly-priced loungewear line,dannyjams debuted exclusively on the Home Shopping Network where it sold out and received rave reviews from consumers.
As an adjunct professor at Moore College of Art, Noble encourages critical thinking, problem solving, risk-taking, and communication skills. He values individuality, creativity and professionalism.
Noble's philosophy as an educator and adjunct professor is that "design is not about a flash of inspiration. It is a rigorous process. Good design is a concept based on a rational approach to the design process. You have to manage the creative process." He believes fashion does not have to make a grand statement or follow a stylistic approach, but "you need to design for people. You cannot ignore the precepts of good design."
Over the years, Danny Noble has collaborated with the City of Philadelphia to promote the apparel industry. He was honored by former Mayor Wilson Goode for his work on the project Philadelphia Dresses the World and is involved in several current initiatives including the Philadelphia Fashion Incubator.
