    Product description

    Fresh Fly Fabulous: 50 Years of Hip Hop Style is a fascinating exploration of hip hop's journey from the rec room of an apartment block to a global phenomenon. The book delves into the evolution of hip hop style over the past 50 years, tracing its roots from the early days of aspiration and individuality to the luxurious brands of contemporary fashion. 

    The book features a collection of stories and memories from people who were there at the beginning, such as DJ Kool Herc and his sister Cindy, who hosted the first "back to school jam" in the West Bronx in 1973. It also includes interviews with influential figures in the hip hop world, such as Disco Fever club owner Sal Abbatiello, designers Dapper Dan and April Walker, Vibe stylist Emil Wilbekin, and former editor of The Source Kim Osorio. 

    The book highlights the local and global impact of hip hop fashion, from Times Square as an early fashion space to the red carpet events where hip hop fashion leaders make a statement. The themes of inventiveness, remixing, and diverse influences are woven throughout the book, covering everything from hair and nails to shoes and sneakers. 

    Fresh Fly Fabulous is brought to life by groundbreaking photographers who captured hip hop style firsthand, including Janette Beckman, Jamel Shabazz, and Ernie Paniccioli. This book is the definitive source for anyone interested in hip hop style and its cultural impact over the past half century.
