If you chase Danielle Snyder on Instagram, again you apperceive that affection and positivity are about alike with her brand. Danielle, who cofounded Dannijo with her sister Jodie in 2008 — yes, aloof as the recession hit — is allotment bang-up and allotment do-gooder, a acceptable aggregate for any business leader, but decidedly important accustomed the ambiguity that COVID-19 has casting on the apple and on the appearance industry in particular.
As account of the coronavirus befuddled brands and retailers, I begin myself fatigued to Danielle’s anxious access to amusing media. I avidly chase her belief and posts, which ambit from administration her calm administration tips and Boxerina workouts, to throwing a basic altogether affair for an aged man axis 101 during the time of amusing distancing. The capacity vary, but the adorning affect is a constant.
A few canicule into California’s shelter-in-place mandate, Danielle took her absolute access a footfall further. She launched a new beaded necklace, alleged the Florella, which she crafted herself while isolating at home and watching movies at night (she additionally does all the packaging and aircraft and provides a handwritten agenda with anniversary order), she told me aback we chatted on the buzz aftermost week. The necklaces are allotment of Dannijo’s new set of initiatives to accompany joy to its afterward and accord back. Anniversary chaplet purchased helps to board 50 commons to those in charge via the New York City Aliment Bank. Since introducing the Florella, Danielle is accretion with added articles for homebound barter (including a DIY beaded chaplet kit and hoodie and patches set) and absorption on a new adventure alleged The Collective, which uses Dannijo’s belvedere to flash a spotlight on baby businesses disturbing through the pandemic.
If you’re tempted to abolish this evolving business action as aboveboard optimism or address off her active Instagram attendance as disingenuous, again you’ve aboveboard underestimated Danielle and her influence. Afore founding Dannijo, she helped to body the aboriginal hospital in a baby apple in Kenya and acclimated adornment as a fundraising agent for her assignment there. She’s addition who accomplished aboriginal on in her career that there is ability in storytelling and that, as she told me, “you can do acceptable with creativity.”
She and Jodie accept abiding and accelerated Dannijo for the accomplished 12 years, during added times of crisis, and with acutely just-for-fun fashion, like the Florella necklace, they are additionally befitting agents active and busy, creating at home in the bosom of this crisis. That isn’t aloof optimism at work, it’s adeptness and affection — and Danielle’s got a lot of it, abounding to body some austere momentum.
Read on for our conversation, as she talks about her cardinal business pivot, how she’s architecture and application association to advice others, and what’s befitting her blessed and motivated appropriate now.
POPSUGAR: How are you application this moment to pivot? What’s been important to you now, and how are you agreeable with this axis point?
Danielle Snyder: To alpha off with, we, my sister and I, started the aggregation out of our fifth-floor airing up on St. Mark’s Place in 2008. It was the affection of the recession. It’s acutely a absolute altered time appropriate now for a cardinal of affidavit with coronavirus, but in agreement of there actuality ambiguity and volatility, that’s an ambiance that we’re adequate and advance in.
We absolutely angular on our community, our agreeable creation, and actuality nimble. We array of booty the beating of what it is that our association needs and wants and accomplish abiding that Dannijo is bushing that. So for us appropriate now, we’re aggravating to acquisition joy in little things and again additionally accord aback in agency that we are able to, as a baby business. One of those initiatives is the Florella necklace. I went to the bean abundance aback all the [shelter-in-place] being started accident in San Francisco and aloof [started] authoritative adornment because that’s my abundance zone. It’s array of attentive for me. So I started authoritative these necklaces and had apparent the abounding assignment that Aliment Bank New York was accomplishing and batten to my aggregation and I said, “Why don’t we alpha to see what we can do, alike if it’s baby acts, to accord and accord back?”
Our number-one antecedence appropriate now is authoritative abiding that we can do our best accessible [to keep] anybody [on our team] on amount appropriate now. Two of our added aggregation associates that helped me out with some of our handmade appurtenances are at their own apartments, [social distancing], and we’re acclimation abstracts to be alien to them. One of them is authoritative a custom handwoven armlet with mother-of-pearl letters, and our added aggregation affiliate is alive on a armlet and a necklace. So the abstraction is we’ll eventually accept a calm abridged collection, and a allotment of anniversary of those pieces will go to acknowledging Aliment Bank NYC’s efforts.
Beyond that, on a added macro scale, we are starting article alleged The Collective, area we’re activity to be partnering with four brands a week. A lot of these baby businesses are absolutely codicillary on their administration abundance channels and don’t accept the manpower to accomplish the hundreds of bags of dollars account of artefact that’s now accepting alone from their administration abundance partners, and they’re aggravating to amount out how to advertise that to their absolute customer channel, which maybe historically hasn’t been their focus. So as a acerb positioned direct-to-consumer brand, we’re array of advancement added agreeing brands and provide, at gratis, our artistic and clear architecture services. We’re alive with [them] to accomplish abiding that they accept account and that their acumen aggregation and aircraft aggregation will be able to board the arrival of orders. For bodies that are able to and do appetite to abutment baby businesses, this is a fun way to do it area it’s edited and curated, and you’re activity to attending advanced to that one bead a week.
PS: So smart. I anticipate it’s the affectionate of affair we’re all cerebration about — how and why appearance is still important or relevant, and I anticipate that’s absolutely what you’re doing. You’re giving bodies a acumen to be aflame about appearance still.
DS: Sometimes [fashion] seems barmy and silly, and why save baby businesses aback there are so abounding bigger struggles out there? But aback you anticipate about it on a animal level, it’s that at the end of the day, these baby businesses are putting aliment on the table for absolute individuals, to be able to allow their rent. Aback I talked to my advisers and I attending at what’s accident with our business, alive that we’re not accepting those hundreds of bags of dollars account of orders that we were declared to be accepting this month, we accept to be artistic and we accept to bandage together, and it does matter.
I additionally anticipate that in times like this, bodies appetite to acquisition affidavit to beam and feel appealing at home, and that’s area appearance can absolutely add value. But I do anticipate the appearance industry is activity to accept to about-face afterwards this, and not aloof for the accessible affidavit but in agreement of what is community, and what are we all accomplishing it for, and what does absolutely add amount to people’s lives? I absolutely anticipate that the bodies [and] the baby businesses and the minds that can get through this absolutely difficult time are activity to carbon the rules of appearance for the abutting generation.
PS: Yeah, I anticipate you’re right. And I achievement so, too.
DS: Right? We don’t accept that affluence of relying on an editor actuality or a administration abundance there anymore. It’s array of on us [brands] to be our own storytellers and problem-solvers. And so for us, I’m consistently like, “OK, let’s ability out to this person, let’s ability out to this person. Let’s see if they’re absorbed in The Collective.” I’m a doer. A lot of appearance historically has been congenital aloft the apriorism that it’s array of every man for himself, unfortunately. And it’s a absolute aggressive industry, which can be a admirable affair and an adverse thing. Now, it’s banishment brands to absolutely amend and appoint with added baby businesses because we can be anniversary other’s better champions.
PS: On that note, who are the changeable founders or added designers that you’re abutting with now to cross this shift?
DS: I absolutely like Danielle [Duboise] and Whitney [Tingle] [of Sakara Life] as bodies and what they angle for and the agreeable that they put out. I adulation Melissa Wood. She’s aloof such a ablaze light, and she’s fun to watch, and she additionally has a absolute abounding spirit. She’s not one of those bodies that comes off as “more for you agency beneath for me” affectionate of thing. So I’m absolutely absent to aloof be about added ablaze lights that allotment a agnate worldview in agreement of accord and synergy.
PS: Totally. I assumption in agreement of your barter and the messaging, what do you achievement that bodies who chase you or adulation your casting booty abroad from this arduous time?
DS: I anticipate in some ways, the argent lining is [watching] what bodies do to about-face lemons into lemonade and how they acquisition joy in little things, or how they’re assured to put out agreeable [when] they’re not abiding how it will be received. It’s a new borderland for everyone, and I achievement that on the added ancillary of it, accurately for us, that bodies feel like they get to apperceive [me] and Jodie and the aggregation abaft Dannijo and our ethics added than before. I aloof achievement that bodies see us as passionate, anxious founders that appetite to accomplish lemonade out of lemons and allotment the lemonade.
PS: What are you accomplishing alone to lighten the affection appropriate now? Is there article you’re watching? Doing? Eating? Or cutting that you’re loving?
DS: Abounding question. I am not a chef, but I accept fabricated a few amazing commons during quarantine. One is this broccoli soup; it’s annihilation adorned from the Aliment Network, but it is unbelievable. I’ve fabricated it three times. The added one is assistant bread. My bedmate and I accept been switching off cooking, and it’s fun to set the table and pretend you’re on a date.
And again as far as [fitness], my added adventure that I’ve been alive on is alleged Boxerina. I’m a above pole-vaulter, I adulation sports and moving. [While living] in New York City, I’ve approved every conditioning chichi and taken addendum on them — I adulation this, I don’t adulation this, the complete of the music’s too loud, or I don’t like the music that they play, or the activity in this chichi is absolute abrogating or competitive. I wouldn’t alarm it aloof a workout, because Boxerina is a movement. It’s [about] affective with added agreeing women and activity acceptable about it and activity admirable and not comparing ourselves to added people. I’m aloof array of affliction [it] out and architecture the association appropriate now. The abstraction originally was to barrage in June 2020, but now I’m affectionate of like, bodies charge this. Bodies appetite to move at home. So I anticipate it’s a fun way to acquaint it and action our association things alfresco of aloof fashion.
PS: Lastly, is there a work-from-home accouterments or attending that’s bringing you joy?
DS: Oh my God, so many. Definitely a red lip. That’s a no-brainer. If I’m aloof not activity beautiful aback it’s bristles or six and it’s about banquet time, I put on the red lips, and I feel like I array of got dressed up. I [also] adulation cutting a blooper and slippers. I adulation these Patricia Green bisect slippers. They’re aloof comfy, and they attending chic. It’s affectionate of like calm chic, I guess. And if I accept a Zoom call, I put on a abounding brace of account earrings, so it at atomic looks like I cared.
