daniella was chosen as one of elle.com’s 50 favorite boutiques and a top U.S. store by Lucky magazine. Here’s a selection of our media coverage.
Daniella Clothing, Jewelry, and Accessories in the Santa Fe Railyard showcases a wide selection of contemporary denim—and designers are getting more experimental with denim than ever; dressing jeans up, or ripping them apart in all new ways. Some trend definers call this Wabi-Sabi style, a Japanese concept that hitches distressing in order to highlight imperfections. Says owner Daniella Fox, “We focus on unique and specialty denim such as those featuring raw hems and distressing with many well-regarded designer brands such as Frame, Rag & Bone, and AG.” (Prices for many of these items fall around the $200 mark.)
The shop also features a number of popular contemporary lines such as Alice + Olivia and Rebecca Taylor for those seeking great dresses. “We are also doing quite well with fun sweats and athleisure items, which can take you from a work out to a night out with friends such as the brands NSF and Free City.” For spring, she notes the variation of feminine tops, on-trend knits, and every day Ts available. “We are doing well with those from Joie and James Perse as well as vintage Ts.” She also points out that Rag & Bone ready-to-wear is one of her best sellers right now for her customers that seek a more professional viewpoint.
With eight years under her belt, Fox identifies her customer as one who is a savvy shopper who is brand aware and looking for quality, fashion-forward style. “I like helping women look and feel good, that has always been the draw for me.” She also likes to support new and emerging brands; such as RTA, an L.A. brand of sweaters and jeans; La Vie – a more casual line from Rebecca Taylor, and the French brand Zadig and Voltaire.

SFR Style: daniella
Santa Fe’s style isn’t really known in a positive light. Most of the shops don’t offer anything for anyone under the age of 50 and are outrageously expensive for no good reason; then there’s the mall; the end.
But there is a store giving hope to the word “style” in Santa Fe. Really, it was Elle Magazine’s finding. In an upcoming piece by the magazine about the “50 states of fashion,” the writers found, in the bat-cave of downtown (the Railyard), Daniella. Yes folks, the cotton- candy-colored light at the end of the tunnel is really the pink sign for Daniella.
Owner Daniella Fox arrived from the east coast 10 years ago and wasn’t planning on staying, but she got some gigs at local clothing shops and realized she was great at sales. She has a background in marketing, advertising and promotion, but within the music business. When asked what made her decide to make the huge change into owning her own clothing store, she says, “It came from meeting and working with people. A lot of my life I’ve wanted to look good and feel good. Everyone needs to come into here [Daniella] and have a good time.”
Three years ago, Daniella opened her store’s doors in the throes of the economic crash. “I don’t know good times,” Daniella says. She’s in her shop seven days a week working on making her store a better place to be. Her business’ inner workings are evident on the surface. Daniella has used the other places she’s worked as a comparison for her own shop and how to improve it. She feels it’s important how you treat the people working for you. “I keep evolving,” she says.
Upon entering the store, I was greeted kindly by the girls working there and chatted amiably with them while I waited to meet with Daniella. There was a very relaxed feeling as one of the girls showed me around the store. Y’all, this stuff is cute; they play fun music in there; and I didn’t see one thing that I didn’t want to try on.
One of the best parts is that they carry brands that no one else carries in the Fe (I’m looking at you, hipsters). Also they’re like the czar of jeans; everyone needs a pair that makes your butt look good.
Go make your own opinion about it. It’s in the Railyard next to Flying Star and REI. The Railyard is pretty much walking distance from everywhere, so you don’t have an excuse.
