Fresh Dressed | Premiering on CNN | 9/3
Fresh Dressed will be premiering tonight on CNN at 10 p.m. EST. If you can't wait that long, you can rent and purchase Fresh Dressed on Vimeo. A fascinating chronicle of hip-hop and urban fashion, FRESH DRESSED goes inside the hustle that brought oversized pants and graffiti-drenched jackets from the street to high fashion's catwalks and Middle America shopping malls. Director Sacha Jenkins' music-drenched history draws from a rich mix of archival materials and in-depth interviews with rappers, designers, and others including Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Damon Dash, Karl Kani, Nasir Jones, and André Leon Talley. The result is a passionate telling of how the reach for freedom of expression would, through sheer originality and swagger, take over the mainstream.
