While it may sound like an easy ride and a dream that can easily be achieved to most people, Daniel fought his way to the top and maintained a balance between following his dreams and taking care of his child as a single parent. Daniel has stated, “From the moment he was born I was by his side. I haven’t separated from him at all, except for a trip he did with his mother, for 7 months, he has travelled across the globe with me and has experienced everything in my career with me.”
Daniel took it upon himself to home school his son and to make sure that his son would have the best Education Possible, Vittorio has attended almost every fashion show as well as participated in many of them Modelling for Kids clothes, and helping around(in his free time). At first it was a challenging part to be able to achieve all of our goals, but soon we have entered on a routine and things just got into place by force, Daniel Oporto made sure that his son was happy every step of the way, and most importantly close to the fashion industry, as he wishes his son will follow his steps one day.
Daniel says Vittorio has given me the discipline of being organized to plan my day week and month ahead.
IT HASNT BEEN easy lately the current circumstances with the pandemic, travelling has been put on halt for both Daniel Oporto and his son. The Bolivian fashion designer said, “we stopped traveling this year since he started school again, and then the Coronavirus came and we didn’t move at all. We are stuck in Doha, Qatar at the moment but we are very happy to be in this great country, Vittorio is going to school here.”
Daniel believes strongly that as a single parent, to never give up and always push yourself to the limit. He also believes that just like in every relationship, communication is key and that it is always important to understand your kids’ needs too.

Teach them the value of life and the important moments that you need to always cherish.”
Even though Daniel loves fashion, he understands that it could be a tough business to get into first of aLL beacuse of its competitive market its strong requirement of effort, time and discipline. However, he also stands strongly by the fact that the fashion industry can help people to connect, to be more sensitive with Nature, being aware of the importance of giving without specting anything in return. Daniel claims that, “I am always thankful for the things that we already have. Its been a long journey, since vittorio was born, long and difficult, but easy things in life do not have a strong foundation, my Father Orlando Ortiz, business man and BANKER, HAS ALWAYS TAUGHT ME THAT FRIENDSHIP IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN BUSINESS, THAT A SMILE CAN change some ones day, that it is nice to be important but it is more important to be NICE”
