Daniela is part of the Austria fashion initiative: #wirsindzusamme ( we are together)
The initiative #wirsindzusammen was launched by Marcos Valenzuela to unite creative people in Austria and to develop projects among creatives. These projects are intended to contribute to rapid development in order to get out of the crisis caused by the pandemic more quickly. In addition, the initiative is intended to invite the government to recognize the enormous potential that creatives in the fashion world in Austria can offer the country. Over the course of the year since its inception, the initiative has focused more on projects related to the fashion world in Austria.
