    Comments:  | Leave A Comment

    Hip-hop began as the antithesis of high fashion: tracksuits and sneakers were all that kids could afford. Then hip-hop  took those low-cost clothes and made them trendy. Now hip-hop fashion entrepreneurs are making classic clothing. One might well ask, “What’s hip-hop about that?”

    In the final episode of GIANT Magazine’s exclusive, six-part online look inside the creation of DEFinition: The Art and Design of Hip-Hop (Collins Design),” co-author Bill Adler and Ice-T discuss the evolution of hip-hop fashion.
