ANGELIKA’S NOTE

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. A Sundance Film Festival Official Selection and rated an impressive 91% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, Director Sacha Jenkins' music-drenched history draws from a rich mix of archival materials and in-depth interviews with rappers, designers, and other industry insiders such as Pharrell Williams, Damon Dash, Karl Kani, Kanye West, 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.
