Fiona Jane is a London-based, Copenhagen-born DJ, sound designer, fashion muse and entrepreneur, whose eclectic tastes and style have earned her a reputation as one of the most knowledgeable and perceptive DJs in the city, with a career spanning far beyond the capital.
Possessing the distinct ability to weave seamlessly between genres and styles, her sets have soundtracked parties for some of the world’s most prestigious brands, including Dior, Loewe, Emilio Pucci and Vogue, taking her across the globe throughout the last decade or more. Whether appearing at Paris Fashion Week, Cannes Film Festival or at Burning Man, Fiona always leaves a distinct and personal impression, intuitively connecting the dots between music, fashion and alternative culture.
Indeed, Fiona's simmering creativity have offered glimpses of any number of potential destinies: designer, model, stylist, fashion blogger, filmmaker and creative consultant. However, with the passing of time and as trends come and trends go, Fiona finds herself irresistibly drawn back to a constant electronic pulse and an overwhelming desire to uncover and discover new music, a passion fostered throughout a childhood impeccably soundtracked by both popular and classical music.
Fiona's major immersion in electronic music began in 2006, during a stint living in Berlin, fortuitously coinciding with the foundation of Berghain and Panorama Bar, which proved hugely influential on her perception of the possibilities in club culture. Subsequently inspired, Fiona then returned to her home city of Copenhagen, creating monthly event concepts at the underground clubs Stengade30 and Simons, booking and playing alongside significant alternative talent, including Djuna Barnes, Trentemøller and Hugo Capablanca. Her underground nous lead to her spearheading Miss Sixty's “RUSKI” Summer Bar concept, further establishing her reputation as an esteemed local selector.
In 2012, Fiona's record collection and reputation was transferred from Copenhagen to London, where regular DJ gigs at the likes of Soho House and Scotch of St. James sat ideally alongside her continuing success as a fashion entrepreneur. Some time later, in 2016, Fiona made the decision to focus full-time on Djing, clocking up regular appearances at Annabels, Blakes Hotel, Isabels and Mandrake Hotel where she still maintains a residency, alongside another at Chiltern Firehouse. Here, Fiona plays exclusively from vinyl, paying tribute to her love and respect to the physicality, artwork and spirit of dance music's myriad subcultures. It's a habit she's transferred to all of her gigs, ensuring an aesthetic that perfectly matches the vintage groove of her sound, as well as her distinctive fashion sense.
Indeed, her signature style typically offers a contemporary twist on vintage looks, a philosophy also present in her Djing, throughout which Fiona explores the sounds of disco, nu-disco, vintage house, tech-house and innumerable variations on soulful, timeless party music.
Fiona's wider interests in fashion and activism continue to inform her tastes and approach to Djing culture. In 2018 and 2019, she played for the Women for Women International charity events, while maintaining a strong interest in sustainable and ethical fashion. In 2017, Fiona was part of the Gina Tricot “Guided by Style’ global campaign together with other top UK influencers. In the same year she was modelling and interviewed for a female-empowering campaign with refinery29 x PUMA.
Fiona is a regular at international fashion weeks, and have been featured in international press. She has caught the eye of Tommy Ton from vogue.com and graced the style page in GRAZIA (IT, DE), New York Times Fashion, London Evening Standard, Elle (DK, UK) and Harpers Bazaar (US).
