Q&A - FINALY, ANSWERS!!!
What is your name?
My Name is Dani :)
And my artist/ DJ name is
Where are you from?
Was born and raised in a small but cute city called Graz in Austria.
After I’ve finished my A-levels, I decided to move to Vienna to study sales and advertisement at the Vienna University of Economics and Business.
5 years and a graduation later, I was working a full-time job as a manager in retail. Berlin seemed like the perfect next step to me, so I’ve decided to quit my job, leave Vienna and start from scratch. Now I live in Berlin since 2013 and it looks like I am going to stay some more years .. but let’s see what the future brings :)
Do you have any hobbies?
So many … 🙈. First of all, I love music and to discover new tracks and artists. Then there is my huge passion for streetwear, fashion and brands. Last but not least: I really enjoy watching NFL football - that’s kind of my secret passion.
Nobody gets it really but I just love it. Been to three NFL games and going to a fourth in New York in September this year. 🙆🏻♀️
How did you become a 'tomboy model‘?
First of all, I ain’t no model! -Far away from being any kind of model, to be honest.
What a shame! haha
I just like to wear ‘tomboy styles’ and androgynous outfits because I think it suits me well and it is very authentic.
Love to wear mens clothing, its the best <3
How/when did you realize you were gay?
When I was 18 years old, I had a dream about kissing a girl.
Right at this moment, everything made sense to me and I understood my whole childhood: me dressing up as a boy, always short hair. Also, I always wanted to be a boy back then.
Unfortunately, my parents never told me that there are more options out there, except dating boys, so it took me a little longer to recognize whats up with me.
When and how did you come out?
My mum always entered my room without knocking.
So, she entered my room when I was currently sleeping, besides my first GF, with our pants both laying on the floor.
What can I say? Guess this was my outing ;)
Your thoughts on gender identity?
My wish: everybody should just be able to be who they want to be, without being judged!
Well, I know we are far from that but I think everyone can participate to create a future where this might be possible.
Any tips for someone who wants to get all the sneaker and clothing drops?
So for me, if I want a new/rare sneaker, I play all the raffles and just hope to win.
Luckily, in Berlin, we have many stores that get rare sneakers which makes it a bit easier to win a raffle.
But like anyone else, I just try my luck and be persistent about it :)
How to afford all your trendy designer clothing?
Well, I know this is an interesting topic for you, so let me answer this ;)
The first thing that I have to say: 98% of all the clothes that I am wearing, on my Instagram, I’ve bought with my own money.
Its just round about 2% sponsored stuff. So how can I afford all the designer clothes: I buy many but also sell it again after taking pics with it.
If I am not in love with a piece, I sell it again after I wore it 1-2 times. This pretty much gives me the possibility to kind of ‚exchange‘ my clothes quite often. That's pretty much the ‚trick‘.
My mood right now is kind of ‚back to basics‘:
Stussy, Dickies, Carhartt, Palace.
Of course I am into designers als well:
Raf Simons, Balenciaga, Alyx and Burberry.
Are you happy?
Yes. I am :)
I live the life that I always wanted to live. Of course, with Instagram, you never know what is going to happen next but I will go on as long as possible.
Of course, there are a few things that could always be better but I cannot complain and I always try to live in the present.
