Looking a lot like Christmas – Danni Truter, NYC

Like Santa on steroids, the Christmas cheer has taken over NYC with a vengeance. Pine trees line every street corner, fairy lights twinkle all night long and you can hear Christmas carols echoing around every corner. As a white Christmas virgin, I am completely embracing the traditions and sights of this magical Winter Wonderland (despite eagerly still waiting for the snow to fall). As our gift lists grow and everyone fights the gauntlet of the ‘Christmas shopping crowds’ the big department stores make sure they put on a show to ensure this traumatic shopping experience doesn’t steal your festive spirit. No one wants a scrooge.

BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG CITY…they weren’t kidding – Danni Truter, NYC

With a heavy case of serious jet lag, my best friend/travelling partner-in-crime, Anna and I made our way to the neon-overload that is Times Square. Being our first night in NYC, it was a case of “we actually made it” and “OMFG…this place is overwhelming”. If you block out the millions of other tourists around you, Times Square at night, is a beautiful thing. Like a bug memorized by the bright lights, it was at this moment it hit me… I now live in one of the biggest and greatest cities in the world! Making the move to NYC was something I had thought about for a while. Even while working for some of the most talented people and brands in Australia, I wanted to challenge myself and be part of the fashion industry in New York. After travelling around the US of A for a month, I have now set up ‘home’ in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
