UK premiere followed by Q&A with directors!
Co-presented by the London College of Fashion.
As hip-hop music was taking off in the late ’80s and ’90s, associated fashion trends and styles were also growing in popularity. Both scenes were dominated by men, but when 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 REMIX 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 and never let go. The film focuses on the cultural impact these talented women, 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.
