Australian fashion designer Dannika Zen
I came across Australian designer Dannika Zen last year, instantly falling in love with her Road Boots. It’s simple, stylish and super comfortable. Little wonder the collection sold out in a matter of weeks. Following a stint in a high-end fashion house in Berlin, Dannika Zen returned home to Australia three years ago with a desire to make her own clothes. Her strengths lie in hand-crafted leather wear, mentored by an Italian leather craftsman with 40 years in the game. The 2012 Voyage 2 collection consists of beautifully crafted pieces utilising a variety of fabrics in eclectic ways. And the Road Boot is back! I’ve just managed to get my hands on a second pair, and if you’re anything like me, you’ll want them in every colour, too.
