You’re both from Jacksonville, Florida, but reside in New York. Best kept secrets in NYC?

Danielle: I love Back Fence, their live music and raw peanuts remind me of my Nashville days. Also J.J.’s Hats, it’s one of the oldest hat companies in New York.

Favourite fashion sites?

Danielle and Jodie: Refinery 29, The Cut, Them-Thangs.com and Man Repeller.

What inspires the two of you?

Danielle and Jodie: New York street style, music festival culture, our travels, African colours and textures, Bohemian prints, menswear, and movies.

What makes you cringe when it comes to jewellery and fashion?

Danielle and Jodie: We love when people use accessories to individualize their look, but wearing a statement earring and statement necklace together is very hard to pull off!

If you could sum up Dannijo in five words what would they be?

Danielle and Jodie: Bold, effortlessly cool, versatile, collectible, and covetable.
