Who’s behind Fashion Container?

Behind team FashionContainer are myself and Tatiane, who is both my best friend and business partner. She’s mostly behind the scenes, but all our projects are a product of our partnership!


Favorite placed you’ve traveled? What’s next on the list?

I recently travelled to Sri Lanka and it blew me away. There’s a great variety of different landscapes and the locals are incredibly kind. I’d recommend it to everyone and I can’t wait to go back and explore more. Next on the list is Ibiza! Europe is wonderful in summer and I can’t wait for everything that is to come.


Where do you find your inspiration?

I really love my Pinterest boards, where I collect a lot of images of looks and styles that I like. So whenever I feel stuck, I browse there to get some new ideas.


A trend you hope never goes away/ makes a comeback?

Those voluminous, super flattering and feminine dresses from the 50s. In my opinion, women looked so much classier then than they do nowadays!


We love the “Personal Stories” section of your blog – tell us how you came up with that?

Thank you! We came up with the “personal stories” section for FashionContainer because we’re passionate about building a platform that shares something ‘bigger’ than just style and travel. Under the personal stories section, we discuss challenges in business, share tips and also talk about our personal lives and everyday problems to share our perspective. This section is still very much evolving, so stay tuned!

Where do you hope to be in the future?

Make FashionContainer the new Huffington post.

What do you hope your readers take away from your blog?

That it’s important to be real. Sure, enjoy the beautiful things and the beautiful outfits, but don’t forget about your inner world. To be inspired. To learn. To be true.

What made you get into blogging?

I was in my first year of law school and I was desperate for a creative hobby that would bring some balance into my life that solely existed studying, studying and studying. I also had no clear idea what I wanted for my future, so I figured it was a good idea to just start ‘my own project’.


Some upcoming summer must-haves?

Off shoulder tops and lots of white. That’s about it!


What’s your favorite quote?

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.
