Although they are not identical twins, Carina and Daniela have always had a strong passion for fashion. This Angolan duo decided to share their creativity with the world by starting their very own fashion blog. With Daneila being the creative director and Carina being the muse of their stimulating images. Despite being in matric and dealing with all the academic stress the dynamic duo still took some time out to work on their craft.  Inspired by the likes of LulamaWolf and Trevor_Stuurman the prolific twins have managed to share their exquisite taste for fashion through their blog which has a simplistic beauty to it.

They have already grabbed the attention of  online boutiques such as  Purple Melon and Utopian Narcotic and have had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with them. These two ambitious young ladies seek to inspire others with a fashion streak like themselves through their blog.  As well as to work with high-end fashion brands such Balmain, Selfi and Pichulik just to name a few but their biggest dream of all is to create a high end fashion brand of their own.

Having gone oversees they also analysed that there are fashion brands such as  Bershka, Pull and Bear and Stradivarius that are not yet in South Africa and have the potential of being a great phenomenon within the countries borders and would like to collaborate with these particular brands in future.

The twins’ motto in life is:

“If you don’t build your own dream someone else will hire you to build theirs.”

-Tony Gaskins


So whatever your dream may be, ask God for the strength and go for it, it doesn’t matter what people think or say. Don’t compromise your life for anyone else but the real O.G above.
