Join us for Fresh, Fly, and Fabulous: Fifty Years of Hip Hop Style, a fashion symposium hosted by The Museum at FIT and led by the exhibition’s co-curators Elena Romero and Elizabeth Way. The symposium will draw on the expert voices of hip hop style from journalists, designers, and stylists to curators, professors, and archivists who will explore topics that center hip hop fashion as a force that has shaped American culture for five decades. Talks and panels focus on the role of jewelry, custom design, media, collecting, and designer brands in amplifying hip hop’s impact on fashion and society. This symposium is held in conjunction with the exhibition Fresh, Fly, and Fabulous: Fifty Years of Hip Hop Style (February 8–April 23, 2023).
