Midnight Couture

Today, guys, you'll meet German besties Jana and Vanessa from MIDNIGHT COUTURE. This duo  is really nice and it inspires me with the photos, songs and news that the girls share with everyone. I don't know what should I say... These girls visit ballet class and that is so cool, because they're probably the only girls, who dance ballet from all my acquaintances. I think that you will like them, because they are awesome! These beautiful girls are very talented and wonderful people. Thank you, thank you, thank you once again! Hope you like the interview!

When and why did you decide to create your blog?
When we both met, we soon realized that we have the same hobbies and one of them was fashion. We always loved to talk about this topic and compared our views, so we decided to share our thoughts with others too and created the blog!

What languages do you speak?
Jana: I know German, English and French. And I’d love to learn Italian.
Vanessa: German is my native language and I also speak English and Spanish. I would like to learn Portuguese.

The best place you've ever visited is/are...
Jana: London (Covent Garden), Marakech (Jardin Majorelle de Yves Saintlaurent) and Paris at night.
Vanessa: London (Notting Hill, Covent Garden, Trafalgar square at a warm summer night) and Berlin (the city I feel home).

What city you'd like to visit?
Jana: NEW YORK! And Tokyo some day.
Vanessa: New York, Copenhagen and Florence.

What hobbies do you have?
Jana: Spending time with my friends, boyfriend and family. Dancing. Traveling.
Vanessa: Everything I can identify myself with.

Why ballet?
Jana: Because Ballet is the base or the origin of all dances. All movements look so simple and easy, but in fact it’s all hard work.
Vanessa: Ask my mother why she put me into a ballet class, but I thank her a lot for doing that. It's the best thing that has ever happened to me.

What are you doing right now?
Jana: Lying in my bed with my mobile and answering these questions.
Vanessa: Listening to lounge music and working on the interview questions.

For how long do you know each other?
Seems like eternity!

How's Fashion Week?
It's already over, but it was great. Still, last summer was better. Winter is not really THE perfect season for running around in breezy clothes.

The best post on your blog is...
Perhaps the Easter post when we created those bunny ears like the ones of Louis Vuitton and took pictures outside (completely spontaneously!).

What's the craziest thing you've ever done?
Jana: Fell in love.
Vanessa: Way too embarrassing!

Favorite clothes?
Jana: Dresses, shoes, warm cozy big pullovers
Vanessa: Black well cut blazer, Christian Louboutin pumps, Mulberry Alex bag, YSL ring, black treggings, white shirt. As simple as that.

The best present you've ever received?
Jana: All the jewelry my boyfriend gave to me, my mobile.
Vanessa: My Mom just made me three huge photo albums with ballet pictures. From my first lesson until now - truly amazing!

What are you greatest weaknesses?
Jana: I’m spoiled.
Vanessa: Chocolate!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Jana: Studying in some cool city, hopefully.
Vanessa: Living in a great flat in Berlin and doing something I really want to do.

If I visit Berlin again, what places you'd recommend me to visit?
There is way to much to be seen! Hackescher Markt is a great area, many cool stores. Gendarmenmarkt is such a gorgeous place. Prenzlauer Berg and Mitte! Night clubs like Weekend and in summer Arena (with swimming pool for night swims to cool yourself from dancing all night). For a good and cheap dinner go to Vapiano.

Last items you've added to your wardrobe?
Jana: A grey blazer, a fur vest, silver glitter leggings, long transparent skirt.
Vanessa: Black zipper coat, ACNE-like booties, green silk kimono.

What do you like to do in your free time?
Hang out together, have some coffee at Starbucks, party all night long, go shopping, meet friends, relax, read, listen to our favorite music.

Your thought on how did your blog become popular.
Because we concentrate on pictures that show our special style and looks, we do have texts too, but never too much, so we are providing a good mix of both. But we wouldn't call our blog 'popular'.

Any advice for me in my blog cause I'm new in it?
Always be honest to yourself and keep doing what you want. With passion and love you can reach more and more.
