Don’t let anyone tell you differently. When it comes down to 80s and 90s Hip Hop, Harlem native Dapper Dan is the originator of luxury streetwear.
His efforts transformed hustler flash and b-boy styling into the most coveted and influential apparel — designs that for the last forty years have influenced high fashion and European runways.
The Business of Hip Hop started with women executives.
It’s true. A culture so cemented in masculine identity has been championed, shaped, marketed and financed by lady executives that saw the vision and ran with it.
