Multimedia Art Bae | Daniela Tesfaie
Maisha: Define your look.
Daniela: 90s grunge meets chic.
Maisha: What’s your favorite style mania of all time?
Daniela: Chokers, leather, plaid, and leopard print– all day, every day.
Maisha: Favorite shopping stops?
Daniela: Metropolis Vintage NYC, hands down. The amount of vintage band t-shirts this store has is unbelievable.
Maisha: How important do you think your style is in terms of your identity?
Daniela: I don't think I put any conscious effort in having a style. I just make sure that I feel like myself in my clothes. When I go out shopping my eyes automatically are attracted to certain items because they resonate with the kind of person I already am. My identity is inherent to my character, so my style decisions come naturally. I feel like it's about time we abandon the idea of following trends. Dare to be yourself.
Maisha: Who are your favorite designers?
Daniela: The one and only, Alexander Wang.
Maisha: If you were in a zombie apocalypse and had to pick one thing from your closet before you leave everything behind, what would it be?
Daniela: A champagne-colored midi slip. Pairing it with Doc Martins and a biker jacket I would already be wearing...Gotta meet Apocalypse in style.
Daniela: I am working in the multimedia content creation and art direction field, so fashion-related projects are no stranger.
Daniela: My multimedia art platform launches on November 1st. Feel free to see it for yourself: http://deadly-vision.com
