Being artistic runs in the blood of this young girl. Her inspiration are her parents and grandparents, who happen to be active in the fashion industry.

Get ready for Danika's colorful collection!

For the RISQ Fashion Event, her collection is entitled “Ethnicity” or “ethnic” and “city” merged into a fashion concept. Her collection shows a burst of vibrant colors and patterns that is inspired by both Eastern and Western cultures. It is a mixture of Eastern inspirations from Sinulog and Ati-atihan, while the Western influence is derived from the American Indians.

Danika goes on to explain that she infused three trends which she saw in the international runways, which are the use of tribal, animal and floral prints.

Her fashion idols are Antonio Marras (especially the colorful designs that he made for Kenzo), Etro, Anna Sui and Alexander McQueen.
