Honey Dijon's encyclopedic knowledge of all things fashion-relatedfrom her impressive magazine collection to her ability to name-drop niche designerswould be intimidating if not for her affable demeanor. The Chicago-born DJ, who now splits her time between Berlin and New York, has become a bona fide staple in both the fashion world and serious electronic music circles since she started dancing at clubs as a teenager in Chicago during the halcyon days of house Music, when legends like Frankie Knuckles and Derrick Carter were spinning. From her collaborations with Kim Jones of Louis Vuitton to spinning her eclectic mix of house, disco, techno, and more at after-parties for designers like Riccardo Tisci, Dijon has managed to gracefully bridge the Worlds of Fashion and Music without compromising her deep connection to underground culture. And while she usually has to work during New York Fashion Week in some capacity, this year she has just been enjoying being a personality at parties while prepping for the release of her debut album, Best of Both Worlds, out on October 13. The title is pun, given that Dijon is trans woman; it is also an accurate reflection of me as an artist, sort of fusing all sorts of different musical genres together, as well as showcasing the queer origins of dance music. When Dijon was growing up in the early 80s on the South Side of Chicago, DJ culture was pervasiveeven her Catholic school would throw big dance parties in the auditorium. Her introduction to the world of Fashion, however, originated in her uncles ' tailoring business. She would spend hours at his shop flipping through glossy pages of GQ and Vogue when she was 8 or 9 years old. Once I saw those things, it was like a Pandora's box, she say. It was just like a whole new world opened up to me and I became obsessed. I want to learn as much as I can. After discovering photographers like Irving Penn and Richard Avedon from these editorials, she would comb through her local librarys photography section, descending down a rabbit hole of aspirational fashion visuals that would come to influence her referential approach to style.
