Have you ever thought that some of these bomb people you see on IG are models based off of how they dress or how lit their photos be ? But then you actually find out that they really aren’t ? Well our next Fxshnjunke Spotlight is one of those examples. We had a pleasure of speaking with the beautiful Aussie native Xanetia Unnrae. In this interview we talk fashion of course, her 2017 goals and more !
Dasia: What do you like most about fashion ?
Xanetia: That it allows you to express who you are as a person without talking.
Dasia: What are your current must have fall trends ?
Xanetia: It’s summer here in Aus, so I haven’t put much thought into it. But I have my eyes on coloured Faux fur & thigh high boots for when Autumn is here.
Dasia: Favorite places to shop ?
Xanetia: I shop in the menswear section of places like H&M and ZARA quite bit but I’m not too picky with where I shop!
Dasia: : Favorite fashion brands ?
Xanetia: At the moment SCK the label and Hanifa are my favourites!
Dasia: I love your style so much ! How would you describe your own personal style ?
Xanetia: This is always super hard for me to describe as I usually dress according to my mood. Most days it’s a comfy crew over everything. However, I take a lot of my inspiration from the military, 90’s music videos and characters like Lara Croft & Fran Fine.
Dasia: I’ve been following you for the past two years and I’ve always loved your Instagram presence as far as the aesthetic on your page, how do you keep it so clean ?
Xanetia: Aww wow! Thank you so much for the love & support. I have a love/hate relationship with my pages aesthetic… again I think it’s me being moody haha. I used to be super ocd with it & all the whites had to be the same etc. But now I try to have a mix of dark & light images edited with the same filter to tie it all together.
Dasia: When most people go to your page what do you think people would say you do for a living ?
Xanetia: Honestly, I’m not sure. I’ve heard some pretty outrageous things lol, most people think I’m a model (which I definitely am not) or a stylist.
Dasia: Do alot of people ask you if Xanetia is your real name, I think its so cute and unique.
Xanetia: Surprisingly a lot of people do think it’s a brand name I’ve chosen, but nope my parents named me Xanetia… I think they wanted to confuse people haha.
Dasia: I love that your Australian, I’m obsessed with the fashion culture and how beautiful the country is, I have to visit ! Where are the best places to shop and dine ?
Xanetia: It really is such a beautiful country, I’m blessed to live here.Depends what city you come to but anywhere along the beach waterfront to eat – you can’t go wrong.For shopping though I would say Melbourne is the best city & for eating probably Sydney or Gold Coast!
Dasia: How do you think you grew an Instagram following ? You’re so close to 100K !
Xanetia: Being reposted onto fashion accounts like @v.ri0t & @ogfashionsense helped me a lot!
Dasia: On your website xuka.squarespace.com you sell fashionable clothes, shoes and accessories, are these designed by you or are these clothes that you dont want anymore ?
Xanetia: It’s not that I don’t want them, I honestly just don’t have space for anymore clothes so I’m hoping they’ll go to anther happy home.
Dasia: loveeee your pictures, what camera do you use to make your posts so bomb ?
Xanetia: Canon 70d
Dasia: Have you collaborated with any brands ?
Xanetia: I’ve created content for a lot of brands, but as far as collaborating on actual clothing lines… not yet 😉
Dasia: Have you heard of Fxshnjunke before ? If so , how ? . If not, what do you think about it ?
Xanetia: Certainly have from seeing other dope fits being reposted onto Instagram 🙂 I think it’s a great place to come to for outfit inspo.
Dasia: What are some of your goals for 2017 ?
Xanetia: Collaborate with as any brands and people as possible. Also travel as much as I can.
Dasia: Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years ?
Xanetia: Travelling the world working with great people within the creative industries.
