Join leading celebrity stylist Misa Hylton in conversation with FIT professor Elena Romero, co-curator of the upcoming MFIT exhibition Fresh, Fly and Fabulous: 50 Years of Hip Hop Style. Hylton is acclaimed for creating iconic looks such as the purple pastie-and-pantsuit ensemble worn by Lil’ Kim at MTV’s 1999 Video Music Awards and Beyoncé’s leather MCM bustier and trench coat worn in the 2018 “Apesh*t” music video. Hylton’s past clients include Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, Missy Elliott, Faith Evans, Sean Combs, and Kimora Lee Simmons. She is the founder of the Misa Hylton Fashion Academy, which offers education for creatives looking to build a successful career in the fashion world.
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.
