The Remix: A Miami Film Premiere to Benefit PATH
Join PATH: Preserving, Archiving & Teaching Hiphop, Inc. and Urbanworld for the Miami premiere of The Remix: Hip Hop x Fashion and A Great Day In Hip Hop Revisited. Proceeds from ticket sales support PATH Programs. Learn more about PATH, Inc. here.
The Remix: Hip Hop X Fashion takes a look at the journeys of fashion architect Misa Hylton and streetwear designer April Walker, among others, who grabbed a foothold in hip hop fashion in the late 80’s and 90s and never let go. As the voices of Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliot, and Lil’ Kim grew louder, so too did the influence of their female designers and stylists working behind the scenes. The film focuses on the cultural impact these talented women and Dapper Dan and Kerby Jean-Raymond have made in the fashion world, from iconic looks styled in influential music videos to their global cultural impact.
