The other night, I was blessed to attend the Tribeca Film Festival Premiere of Remix: Hip Hop x Fashion.
According to the creators, “The Remix: Hip Hop X Fashion traces the origins of fearless, full-color hip hop style and explores the women and male allies who have transformed fashion through hip hop. From the Bronx to the runways of Paris, the film leads with the journey of renowned fashion architect and new Global Creative Partner at MCM, Misa Hylton, as the first stylist to meld streetwear with haute couture. The film delves into Hylton’s most recognized fashion looks with her muses including Lil’ Kim, Mary J. Blige and Missy Elliot. Additionally, the documentary reveals the global cultural impact influenced by the fashion world with iconic fashion trends and styles from female designers and stylists working behind the scenes, including legendary streetwear designer April Walker, plus additional key voices behind the cultural movement (including me!).”
