What to Watch | "Fresh Dressed"
When was the last time you had actual emoji-type *hearts* in your eyes? I did when I found out about 'Fresh Dressed', a documentary by Sacha Jenkins on the influence of hip hop culture on the fashion industry. I've been waiting for this movie to become available to the masses for a long time. A Hip Hop x Fashion documentary? It is truly a great time to be alive. Watching the symbiotic evolution of fashion and hip-hop from it's early origins is truly fascinating and Jenkins did a phenomenal job capturing this history on film. From the streets to the runway, the movie chronicles some of hip hop's most important fashion moments by prominent style figures of rap such as Kanye West, P. Diddy, and Pharell Williams. The documentary makes you realize how much of a role rap music has on mainstream popular culture.
