Fashion & Style 411 : Breann Danae

Meet Breann Danae (25) from Fort Worth, TX. She recently moved to Atlanta to finish school, and further her modeling career. Breann Danae is taking a break right now to get back to where she needs to be physically. She’s been in front of the camera as well as the mirror since before she could even tie her shoes. Fashion is something Breann has been very into, but she haven’t always been in the position to display her fashionista side like she wanted to. She has now been in several fashion shows in Atlanta, and Dallas and plan to do many more. Breann’s favorite type of shoot would be something showing an artistic, or creative side…or definitely something that tells a story. She plans to show the world that as a thick, brown skin girl she don’t have to be an urban model. I’m here to make a difference.

 1: So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION?

BreannDanae : I’ve been into fashion really since I was a child, about 5 yrs. I always wanted to pick out my outfits, and would be so quick to pose for a picture. I used to think I wanted to be a fashion designer, but soon after getting a sewing machine, I decided I’d just wear the clothes instead.

Question 2 : Do you have a signature STYLE?

BreannDanae: I honestly don’t believe I have a signature style. I’ll follow a few trends here and there, while remaining true to myself. But a lot of the time, you can catch me wearing a nice pencil skirt, or a good pair of high wasted skinny jeans with a simple strappy heel. My favorite colors to wear would definitely be earth tones.

Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER?

BreannDanae: To be honest, I don’t have a favorite “celebrity” designer. I do have a favorite Instagram designer though. I’ve never met her, but I love her work. Her IG handle is _bumblebryy. She has a true passion for what she does, and her pieces are gorgeous! 

Question 4 : Who is your current STYLE crush?

BreannDanae: My current style crush is definitely Rasheeda. Her style is everything! Very simple, but very fashionable. It can even sometimes be a little “tomboyish”, but still classy and that’s why I love it. I love to mix looks together. I’m also a big fan of Heather Sanders. Heather has that 90’s look most of the time…yet so chic. They both have their own boutiques as well. Rasheeda has Pressed ATL in Atlanta, and Heather has her Sorella Boutique in LA.

Question 5: How do you pick the ensembles you display?

BreannDanae: When it comes to picking out my clothes, it definitely depends on the situation. But for the most part, I take into consideration the type of event, the weather, how I feel, and what looks best at that moment. At night I tend to go for darker colors. While during the day, I would prefer something more light

Question 6 : What are some of your favorite boutiques to get your fashionable pieces?

BreannDanae: There are so many boutiques now, it’s hard to keep up. But I love shopping at a local boutique in Arlington, TX called Blu Chandelier. The owner is a doll, and the clothes are bomb.com. One of my favorite online boutiques would actually be Fashion Nova. I’ve ordered so many pieces from there that I was extremely pleased with.
