Meet Whitney Fierce
on her morning routine
I usually make breakfast tacos. My recent favorite have be shaved brussels sprouts, eggs, salsa verde, and sometimes I get wild with some avocado. Then I hop in the bath. After that, every day is different.
I first started DJing in NYC after leaving the fashion industry. It was supposed to be a little change of pace for a bit, and I absolutely fell in love. It was a couple weeks in that I knew that it wouldn’t be just a hobby.
on her personal style
I don’t shop particularly often, but when I do, I really like COS. I like local designers or something a bit unique. I only wear all black or all white. Aesthetically, I go for super drapey or mega structured, and juxtaposing the two.
on her beauty routine
My beauty routine is one of the only normal routines I have. Wash, tone, moisturize. I like simple products. I try not to slather my body in chemicals. Also I don’t think I could live without my Sonicare. I like to use Dr. Bronners 18-in-1 Hemp Almond Pure-Castile Soap, Troupe Capsule Parfums, Raw Shay Butter Anti-Aging Moisturizer, and Tea Tree Oil.
on her favorite records
The record in the black sleeve is Kelly G. feat. Sharon Pass -Go Down Moses. It’s a gospel house record from 1998 and is amaaaazing. The art that faith produces is incredible, and a huge interest of mine. Also it’s just a general banger, and feels so good.
on her dream collab
I really love working with people in the studio, but I don’t know if I’ve ever thought about a dream collab. Working with Kirk Franklin would be AMAZING though.
on working in a male dominated industry
Working in a male-dominated industry is a lot like living, haha. There are both advantages and disadvantages. Basically what I’ve found is that you just have to do your absolute best, put in time and effort, and prove your work beyond gender.
on Plato’s Symposium
Plato’s Symposium is one of my favorite books ever. Aristophanes’s Speech is one of the most important things I’ve ever read, and sometimes I think of it in a nearly religious sense. I would suggest putting it in your brain piece.
