About this Program

This section of the Summit will pay homage to the leaders and trends of Hip Hop fashion. Hip hop fashion has indeed undergone various transformations. In the 1980s and '90s, brands like Adidas, Nike, and FUBU became synonymous with hip hop style. Baggy jeans, oversized jerseys, and Kangol hats were popular. Then, in the 2000s, we saw a shift towards a more glamorous and flashy aesthetic, with artists like Jay-Z and Sean Combs promoting luxury brands like Gucci and Versace. Hip hop fashion has had a profound impact on mainstream culture. Today, you see elements of hip hop style in high fashion runways, collaborations between luxury brands and streetwear labels, and even in everyday casual wear. The influence of hip hop fashion extends beyond clothing to hairstyles, accessories, and even the way people carry themselves.
