The Simple Things
I'm the Community Volunteer for Fashion Photography. This means I feature DD from the following galleries:
Photography>People and Portraits>Fashion Portraitsand
If what you want to suggest isn't in either of these categories, check this out: FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?
I cannot feature a deviant who has had a DD (on any type of art!) within the last six months. Don't worry if you accidentally suggest someone who has had one more recently as I always check, but just keep in mind that might be a reason I don't feature someone!
I love self suggestions! Please don't feel shy or embarrassed about suggesting yourself. All art is competitive, but the fashion industry is insanely so, so I encourage you to take advantage of every self promotional chance you have and get to suggesting yourself! I will never judge anyone negatively for doing so, only positively; I will never share the fact it was self suggested, whether I chose to feature or not.
Pretty pretty pretty please use a thumb code in your suggesting note, not a link! You'd be amazed by how much time this saves and how much easier it makes things for me!
I will feature anyone if I like their fashion photography. I don't care how many pageviews they have, or how many favourites/views/comment the specific piece has. If I like it and think it should be shared with people, I will feature it.
Retouching matters. I know a lot of people take a strong stance against retouching, and I will happily feature quality work which is unretouched or unedited. But I am unlikely to DD a shot which, even if it was originally a truly quality shot, has been edited with blurred skin or contrast/exposure/whatever messed about with to such an extreme in photoshop that it's no longer it's no longer a quality shot.
Nudity is not a problem, I like a little bare skin. But there has to be garments - clothes or accessories - if there's no garments, I cannot feature it.
I'm afraid I don't have time to reply to all of my DD suggestions. I won't let you know if I'm going to feature it or not. If you really desperately need to know, then please ask that I respond in your original note and I will do my best to do so, but I receiving 30+ notes a day so it does get a little crazy!
Related to the above, because I get such a high volume of notes, it might take me a while to read your suggestion. I'll get there eventually, no need to resend as this just exacerbates the problem!
If you suggest a specific piece, I might sometimes browse the deviant's gallery and pick a piece I prefer and feature that instead, but still list you as the suggester.

Hopefully now I'll stop getting anthro DD suggestions - I stopped being anthro CV nearly two years ago. Those suggestions should go to ^KovoWolf!
