Tarina Tarantino and her pink hair guest DJ on KCRW
You know Tarina Tarantino as the fuschia-haired jewelry designer-turned-makeup-maven who has a penchant for glitter. Now you can know her as temporary disc jockey, too. The designer lent her musical taste to KCRW, joining the likes of Scott Sternberg and Trina Turk as former station guests who hail from the fashion world.
Tarantino’s playlist includes 1980 hit “No Strange Delight” by Roxy Music, which she says is the inspiration behind a current collection-in-progress, “Generique” by Michel Legrand — the tune she walked down the aisle to, and “What She Knows,” an electronic dance tune by Sally Shapiro that reminds her of fashion week in Milan.
“It really reminds me about the nights in Milan – travelling through the streets, going from one party to another during fashion week and just the beautiful, sexy gothicness of Milan at night.”
You can listen to the program, see the full track list and read the full transcript on KCRW’s website.
