50 YRS of HIP-HOP FASHION: Pt 1: WALKER WEAR: BY APRIL WALKER.
Hello everyone out there as always it’s good to see you , I’m back with another one. This year the art form , the lifestyle , the music , known as Hip-Hop has been around for well over fifty years. That’s a milestone within itself , because fifty years ago who would have known that Hip-hop would take it this far? However for those of us who have been around since the beginning of this thing we call Hip-Hop , we are glad to see it has come as far as it has , and we were here to see it happen. But the music didn’t just come by itself , it came with an attitude , a swagger , or once again a lifestyle , the key word being style. Hip-Hop brought it’s own style and fashion with it, hence from Hip-Hop brands emerged known as streetwear and in the 90’s there was an explosion so to speak of designers and brands that were the pioneers in the art of streetwear , some of which are still around to this day and being reintroduced to a brand new audience of fashion and streetwear enthusiast alike. One of those brands being the one that is the topic of today’s vlog/blog , the brand that I am speaking of is WALKER WEAR by : April Walker.
Meet APRIL WALKER , she is the designer and owner behind this classic 90’s brand , that has stood the test of time and has been reintroduced once again to a new generation. At one point there was not a music video or even Hip-Hop based movie where you would not have seen a piece of WALKER WEAR spotted somewhere on camera , being worn by some Hip-Hop great.
Taking it back to present day , the brand is still in existence and she has not tried to really reinvent the brand just modernize it a little , all the while keeping the true esthetic of the brand alive, as well as the art of true streetwear that has seemed to have changed some over the years, but that’s another story for another time.
