FAMILY SERIES: DALTON TAYLOR
My dear Hermano Dalton Taylor is a fashion designer/DJ from Nebraska, living in New York City.
I met Dalton during my second year in New York sometime in 2015 while he was still studying fashion at FIT and infamously traded a laptop for some Celine sunglasses. Since then, we’ve blacked out on the 4th of July together on my roof, shot Glock 9s and taken molly… all in the same week!
Dalton works in production for the label R13 and runs his own line as well as DJing/hosting a weekly party at Kind Regards, amongst other downtown delinquent spots he frequents.

I asked Dalton to send me a bio and he said:
“After coming to New York and giving up piano and sax, takes passion for music to djing scene & enjoys spinning techno and deep house to supplement playing in jazz combos back home. Masturbates frequently and considers himself well versed in fleshlight construction- also an avid reader of Gwyneth Paltrow’s sex blog”.
WHAT GOT YOU INTO FASHION?
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK?
At this moment I would say it’s as if I was 16 and just discovered techno music.
WHO IS YOUR STYLE HERO?
I didn’t really like Rick Owens until I saw that music video of him getting pissed on in the face. It made him relatable.
YOU TEXT ME EVERY WEEKEND TO GO TO A RAVE - WHAT’S BEEN THE BEST ONE OF 2019 SO FAR?
Umfang&Etapp Kyle. Shit venue but great show.
Your going away party I believe.
WHAT FAMOUS PERSON YOU TRYNA PUNCH ON WITH?
Philipp Plein. Id spend a year gettin jacked just so I could knock that dude out in one right hook. God damn.
FAVORITE DEAD MUSICIAN?
Bill Evans. (Massive jazz fan)
BEST / WORST TREND OF 2019?
I don’t think I even follow fashion enough anymore to have a favorite or not. Doing a 9-5 in fashion really changed it for me - now in my spare time I focus on my creative projects outside of the industry... lately it’s been learning how to produce my own tracks, become a better DJ & develop my ear, dabbling in multimedia art, & focusing on my accessories and leather goods brand DALTON TAYLOR NY .
IF YOU HAD TO GET A FACE TAT?
A unibrow damn!
WHAT ACTOR IS PLAYING YOU IN YOUR NETFLIX BIO PIC?
If Samuel L Jackson can put as much energy into my bio pic as he did with snakes on a plane he’s motha fuckin in.
