Dream: What is it like staying at Dream Downtown?
Marianna: I just got in town for New York Fashion Week, I’m so excited, it’s like my seventh season coming here and the most important thing for me is staying in great location. I love this hotel because it’s young, fresh, modern and it doesn’t feel old and stuffy, kind of like some other hotels in New York can feel so I love staying here.
D: What made you become a blogger?
M: So I started my blog because I was working as a TV host and I just saw digital influencers come up around the same time and at the time where I was working I would always have these really great ideas and my boss would be like ‘ehhhh I don’t know if that’s going to work, I don’t know if that’ll translate to the internet. It was kind of a place for me to do all those things that my boss wouldn’t let me do. Then over time it started to get more views and more traction and then a few months later I was like I guess I”ll just quit my job and see if this works out. Luckily it did!
D: How many pairs of shoes did you pack for New York Fashion Week?
M: I just love shoes!
