￼STYLIST: DJ FULANO AGE: 9
HOMETOWN: NEW YORK CITY
From Run-DMC’s classic shell toe kicks to James Brown’s shiny suits, cool fashion and dance music are two crucial elements for an unfor- gettable bash. Nine-year-old spin- ning protégé DJ Fulano knows this well. Noted for his kid-friendly playlists, Fulano also knows a thing or two about style. The future fourth grader has mixed at parties for designers Diane von Furtstenberg and Bonnie Young, and he typically polishes off his prep school chic outfits with vin- tage brooches and pocket squares.
Just before he left for summer vaca- tion (he’ll spend it in the country recording), Fulano stopped by the Earnshaw’s office to give us a les- son in mixing—as in pairing classic threads with funky accessories.
Do you like to shop?
Not for clothes because it always takes four hours and I have to try on a bunch of stuff and my mom is like “ooh” and “aah,” but I like to shop for toys. Wal-Mart, Target and Toys “R” Us are my favorite places for toys.
Describe the perfect party.
There would be a DJ with good music, lots of tasty food like spaghetti with clams, fun people and cupcakes, cake, ice cream . . . and ice cream cake.
Who is your favorite musician?
Which songs get people on the dance floor?
“Walk This Way” by Run-DMC, LL Cool J’s “Jingling Baby” and Loose Joints’ “Is It All Over My Face?”
When you’re not spinning records, what do you like to do?
I like to play video games, watch television and eat.
