A good DJ can easily find themselves as a party’s centre of attention, so with all of those eyes on you, why not use it to make a statement?

Honey Dijon - a vocal advocate for trans rights and awareness, speaking from her experience as a black trans woman DJ - was born in Chicago, where she started her love story with music after hearing the soul and r&b that his father used to play in the basement of his house.

In a short time she was obsessively buying her own music in established stores in Chicago such as Imports Etc and Gramaphone, while perfecting her own personal style - eminent for crossing musical genres - that led her to play in envied booths such as Panorama Bar, Harry Klein, Sub Club, Output, Sankeys, Ushuaia or Smart Bar, among others around the globe.

As for her discography, she has appeared on labels such as Classic, the mythical label of another of his references, Derrick Carter, as well as on Rampage and Nervous Records.

 

 

Miss Honey Dijon moved to New York City in the late '90s when the scene in Chicago began to change after a synthetic hangover from the '80s. Launching her character and unleashing her unstoppable spirit, Honey Dijon - powered by a borderless intuition -  became a mainstay of the city’s underground club scene as well as the city’s fashion industry.

Honey Dijon is a social reference, its goal is to transmit all musical knowledge and creative energy to queer people, coloured and marginalized from society to make them visible. Identity, freedom and self-actualization, reflect their inspiration from taking over worldwide known clubs, also called free zones where we can all become our most intimate aspiration. 

Underlying the complexity of getting far in the world of DJs and electronic music being a woman and even more so being transgender, Honey Dijon - known today as one of the most outstanding referents of contemporary electronic music - has climbed to the top in the world of music and now, has just opened the big door to fashion. 

 

 

 

 

Comme des Garçons -  which has turned upside down any type of convention about the canons of gender and beauty in the fashion industry - has confirmed that it is working on a collection with cult DJ Honey Dijon. The brand's first collection will be launched this summer under the name Honey Fucking Dijon and is set to be a line of DJ bags and t-shirts.

 

“As a trans woman of colour I’d never imagined that this would be possible. Thank you for allowing me to represent my culture, community, and love of house music. I am truly honoured 

 

 

 

 

Honey Dijon - that has been DJing for as long as she can remember - frequently appears playing at after parties for Burberry, Prozena Schouler, DVF, and Prabal Gurung and even when the masterminds behind the turntables at runways and events don’t always get the recognition they deserve, Dijon has managed to make a name for herself by working with some of the icons of the fashion industry.

For the past seven years, the DJ has been doing the tracks for Kim Jones’ Louis Vuitton menswear shows and has continued her journey with the designer during his reassignment at Dior. She maintains a close friendship with Riccardo Tisci, Naomi Campbell and has worked alongside fashion photographer Steven Meisel on a Prada campaign.

 

 “When I was very young fashion offered me a world that was different from where I came from” 

 

 

We are in the golden age of iconic women who launch brands, pushing for progress. Honey - as a militant of the LGBT community that counteracts gender restrictions and traditional sexual identities - had always been looking for new ways to unearth the unknown, particularly through her love of art, fashion and photography.

We can't wait to see what the union of the emblematic brand Comme des Garçons and the favourite DJ of fashion, Honey Dijon - an expert in crossing cultural borders - will bring us.

 

 

Stay tuned!
