Past History

Daniel is the reluctant new editor-in-chief for MODE. His appointment wasn't without controversy. Although he graduated from Harvard with a Business Degree, his only experience with the fashion world has been dating models. It was his brother Alex who was supposed to inherit the family mantel while Daniel entertained himself in clubs as the perennial bachelor. With his brother's death, he had to assume his position and deal with the expectations of his father. This has been complicated by both the resentment and adoration of many of his co-workers.

Even with a heavy workload and a busy personal life, he only narrowly manages to keep himself afloat thanks largely to Betty's support. As he tries to become more attuned to the world that he's been thrown into, he's also met this match in Sofia, the beautiful and devious editor whose managed to give him a taste of his own medicine. While at first, this was her intention, the pair has developed a more complex relationship and Daniel has had to start facing his own feelings.
