Next up in our Fashion Week DJ profiles is Tennessee Thomas. The model/actress, who is also a drummer in her band The Like, recently modeled for Zac Posen's Z Spoke video lookbook. In addition to having great hair, killer style and musical genes (her dad was the drummer for Elvis Costello and The Attractions), she also DJs parties and shows year round.
Below, she fill us in on the first fashion show she ever performed at, what she's currently listening to and more.
What was the first fashion show you ever went to?
My band (The Like) was invited to walk in the fashion show of Charles Anastase in Paris 2006. That was the first fashion show I ever went to! It was at the Louvre and the most extraordinary experience. He is still my very favorite designer so it was an honor. It was like walking the plank on a pirate ship, I was so scared. We were very clumsy, but I think he wanted it to be awkward like that.
What is the first fashion show you DJ'ed?
My band played live on the catwalk at Vena Cava which was fun, and I did a spooky sixties DJ set at Rachel Antonoff's haunted house presentation.
