No Fixed Abode with ‘FRESH DRESSED”
Fashion has always told a story, and the tale of how graffiti laden denim jackets, oversized trousers and shell toe sneakers went from defining street style in the 1980’s to heavily influencing the fashion catwalks the world over.
Fresh Dressed, a new documentary by Mass Appeal founder Sacha Jenkins, chronicles how hip hop and its lasting relationship with fashion resulted in an expression of aspiration that resonated with an entire generation.
Featuring interviews with Damon Dash, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West and Karl Kani, Fresh Dressed explores the issues of identity, self expression and music and how it has influenced streetwear how we know it today.
“The History of Fresh” will be held on the 24th October, in East London, and will include an exclusive screening of “Fresh Dressed” (at the iconic Rio Cinema in Dalston) as well as a panel discussion featuring some of the UK’s most prominent streetwear experts (including representatives from the London College of Fashion, as well as Wale Adeyemi MBE, founder of B-side and Marc Hare, founder of Mr. Hare) to talk through how the UK took the style from America and made it their own.
The after party music and fashion presentation (being held at London Fields Brewery), designed to showcase some of the most exciting streetwear designers including, No Fixed Abode. Featuring VJ-ing performances from Visonbombing.
No Fixed Abode will bring to life through music and dance what it means to be “fresh dressed." "This will be something you have never experienced, I promise you that." Emma Mann founder said.
