There’s nothing Hannah Bronfman can’t do. Whether she’s flexing on Instagram with enviable yoga poses, sharing the latest healthy bites on her wellness platform HBFit.com, or spinning at some of the year’s biggest parties, she’s the ultimate girl on the go. So when we heard that the influencer would be in Milan, during fashion week nonetheless, to perform her first-ever DJ set in the Italian city, we jumped at the opportunity to tag along.
We caught up with Bronfman between shows for an inside look at her first night spinning in Milan.
Who What Wear: What brings you to Milan?
Hannah Bronfman: I’m excited to be here in Milan to DJ for Marie Claire Italia for their Women We Love event and also to attend the Fendi and Emporio Armani shows, as well as the amfAR Gala.
WWW: What inspired you while creating the playlist for this particular event?
HB: I was excited to play in Milan, as it was my first time. I didn’t set a playlist for the event; I never do that, because it’s important to read a crowd. I knew it was going to be the fashion crowd, so a mix of oldies and new electro-pop is the vibe I went for during the event.
WWW: Do you have a routine you follow to help prepare you for the night of your DJ set?
MB: I definitely look at my music and see what I have and haven’t played recently. I love to put on under-eye masks because they leave me feeling fresh and alert. It’s also important for me to eat before I DJ, as nobody likes a hungry DJ! In all honesty, I don’t like to eat late, so I would rather eat before versus after a gig. Staying healthy is hard, but there are always options! I went for a chicken salad!
WWW: How do you maintain healthy habits while traveling for work?
HB: I like to pack my own snacks and do research on where I am going. I can seek out a green juice or find a cute lunch place with great salads. Working out is hard in places you are unfamiliar with unless you are a runner, which I am not. So I usually just do some planks and an ab workout right when I wake up in my hotel room.
WWW: How do you decide what to wear when you’re DJ’ing?
HB: I like to wear things that are comfortable, but it’s always great to have a fun top because most people only see me from the waist up!
WWW: Describe your DJ style:
HB: My personal DJ style is a real variety. I play everything from funk to disco to hip-hop and electro-pop. Really anything that has an upbeat dance vibe!
