What do you do and what do you love most about it?

Dajanaic: I am what people would call an influencer. I post pictures on Instagram and my blog and let my follower take part in my life. One big reason why I love what I do is that I can inspire people with my outfits and my makeup. I love being a role model for girls and women. If I hadn’t started my Instagram channel, I wouldn’t have met a lot of people who play an important role now in my life. I guess that is a fact that had and still has a great impact on my life.

What influences your style? Who inspires you the most in this industry?

Dajanaic: I don’t really have one big role model. One of the best things about Instagram is that you can see pictures of different styles from all over the world. Of course I get inspired by that but I love really thinking about my own outfits and create my own styles

What are some of your best fashion brands?

Dajanaic: I think my followers know that I am a big fan of exclusive brands. A selection of my favourite brands are Chanel, Givenchy and Balenciaga. I wear a lot of pieces from them. But I also buy a lot of my clothes at Zara. I always find something to take along there.

Style Inspiration: If you were to meet your president today, what outfit are you rocking?

Dajanaic: When you have a look at my Instagram account, it is quite obvious that it would definitely be black as most of my outfits. I’d wear a pair of black flares, a blazer, pointy pumps and a small black handbag.

Name three fashion items/ accessories you absolutely cannot live without.

Dajanaic: Definitely a nice bag, cool shoes and some jewelry. Every ordinary outfit can be turned into something special with these three components.

How often do you work with brands and how many so far?

Dajanaic: I work with brands on a regular basis. To be honest I haven’t counted them because it has been quite a lot. But I always make sure to find a good balance between commercial and private content.

How does blogging affect people’s lives, in your opinion?

Dajanaic: I guess or I hope that people use a blogger’s content as an inspiration to think about different possibilities. I personally don’t want to affect people in their choices I just want to be there to help people getting to know different possibilities and to think about them. 

You barely use words when blogging or posting on social media, is there a particular reason?

Dajanaic: I guess it’s because I focus on fashion and beauty. Even though I share a lot on social media I still want to keep my privacy. When I post pictures I want to inspire people with my outfits and share new ideas how to combine different pieces. I can do this the best with pictures and I think it’s not necessary to say a lot about it. I want the people to create their own opinion and ideas.

What one thing do you hate most about social media?

Dajanaic: Most of the things and the persons on social media seem to be perfect. Even though everyone has a bad day from time to time. We shouldn’t forget that all of us are just normal human beings with normal problems. Not everything is always as perfect as it seems to be. We should never forget that! 

“Most of the things and the persons on social media seem to be perfect…We shouldn’t forget that all of us are just normal human beings with normal problems”

If you could change something about the world, what would you change?

Dajanaic: I would simply want that everyone lives in peace. No more wars or disputes on this earth.

We know you’re working on a personal collection. So far, how’s that going and when can we expect it?

Dajanaic: It’s going really well. I have a great team with a lot of knowledge who supports me. It is a lot of work but absolutely love it bringing my ideas into a fashion collection. It won’t be that long anymore until the release, so stay tuned. 

“If I could change one thing about the world, I would simply want that everyone lives in peace”

Finally, what three most memorable social media moments can you share with us?

Dajanaic: My favourite and most memorable moment was definitely my first meeting with Michelle. Michelle and I got to know each other through Instagram and I think it was in 2014. Today I can say that she is not longer just a friend of mine but family.

Another memorable moment was definitely my first time at the Berlin Fashion Week. I never thought I could be part of events like this.

And my first paid collaboration which was with Daniel Wellington. It was never my plan to actually earn money with my Instagram account but that is how life goes and now I am here and living my dream.

“I think there is always something special about doing things the first time. That’s why all my memorable moments have something to do with the first time, I guess.”
