Marika Beňadik Majorová captured for Poujd the fairy tale poetics of Adriana’s personality in our universal dress Versatil in its snowy version. Adriana was interviewed by Nikola Luzárová, the Urban Market organiser. We are again grateful to Fach for providing us with space.

Music and fashion, what do they mean to you?

Absolutely everything. If I have music, I’m alive. When I think about fashion, I know I’m fine.

When you’re about to play in the evening, do you spend much time choosing what to wear?

My DJing outfit used to be the craziest idea of the given period. So to “put it all together” meant half day in pyjamas with music and wardrobe. Today, I’ve got a few black pieces that work and also don’t attract unnecessary attention: Since it’s mainly about the music :)

In the world, many DJs wear tees of the labels they represent. But female DJs don’t wear them much. How do you see that?

I’ve got a few tees with my favourite bands, but since they are mostly shapeless male tees, I feel strange in them. But my DJ-ing other half, Barbara, is a complete master in combining such tees. So I get why DJanes rather wears her beloved label for sleeping.

DJing is mostly about mixing music and different genres. Is music versus fashion an ideal combo?

Music vs. fashion is since the emergence of world stars probably the most visible connection between the two different worlds. At present, though, I see that many subcultures with their styles have penetrated to mainstream fashion in a very pleasant way. That’s why I love the hip reappearance of 90s’ music connected with maximum pull out of the most interesting pieces. For example, Blood Orange or Anderson Paak are fun for me in both areas.

What are the 5 most crucial wardrobe pieces for you?

If I disregard comfy underwear :) basic long-sleeve tees with the highest possible neckline, stretch jeans with a high waist, leather jacket, pencil skirt knee length, and fave sneakers. I can make a gig with these five pieces and also stand a work meeting.

Puojd’s new collection is called the Village. What village woman are you?

I’m that dreamy herbalist from the corner of the village that takes care of all cats around and bakes cakes every Sunday.

Recently, there’s still more fuss about sustainability, recycling, new technologies. Do you consider is the value of the clothes you wear? Does it influence your shopping choices?

I’m trying not to waste our environment as much as I can. I switch between second-hands, local design, and DYI in a mainstream way, but my basic rule is usefulness. For a couple of years, I’ve been immune to mindless shopping; just imagine the people who’ve made the thing by their country of origin and the way home without purchased useless stuff feels better immediately.
