BAMIN NOTES | Trend: Fresh Dressed Documentary, the History of Hip-Hop Through The Lens of Fashion

Fresh Dressed: The Revolution Of Fashion Born On The Streets, a documentary that explores the evolution of hip-hop through the lens of urban fashion, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last weekend. Directed by Mass Appeal’s creative director Sacha Jenkins and co-produced by Nas, the film combines old-school video footage with insightful commentary from icons like Big Daddy Kane, Kanye West, and Pharrell Williams. Jenkins takes the viewer on a journey through the history of hip-hop and fashion; from the ‘70s South Bronx B-boys’ custom outfits to ‘80s hip-hop tailor of Harlem Dapper Dan’s remixed clothing to the ‘90s mainstream rise of urban sportswear and its on-going influence on the modern day.
