Fashion Culture Event: Dance, NYC Street Style, and Hip Hop
November 8, 2022 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join choreographers from the Hip Hop Dance Conservatory (H+) and Keep Rising to the Top (KR3T’s) together with FIT professor Elena Romero, who will discuss the evolution of hip hop style—from authentic NYC street style to what is now a more intentional representation of that style. H+ and KR3T’s support young dancers as they prepare for a career in the performing arts. Professor Romero has a long career in fashion journalism and is co-curator of an upcoming exhibition at The Museum at FIT on hip hop style. This event is organized by the Apollo and The Museum at FIT in preparation for the exhibition Fresh, Fly, and Fabulous: Fifty Years of Hip Hop Style, slated to open at The Museum at FIT in 2023, and as part of the Apollo’s Live Wire series.
Note: This event will be held at the Apollo Sound Stage at 253 West 125th Street in New York City.
This event is made possible with the support of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
