Dir. Sacha Jenkins. 2015, 90 mins. Digital projection. With Damon Dash, Daymond John, Karl Kani, Nasir Jones. Fresh Dressed is a fascinating chronicle of hip-hop, urban fashion, and the hustle that brought oversized pants and graffiti-drenched jackets from Orchard Street to high fashion catwalks and shopping malls in Middle America. Director Sacha Jenkins's music-drenched history draws from a rich mix of archival materials and in-depth interviews with rappers, designers, and other industry insiders, including Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Sean “Puffy” Combs, Nasir Jones, Pusha T, Swizz Beatz, Damon Dash, André Leon Talley, A$AP Rocky, Marc Ecko, Big Daddy Kane, Kid ‘N Play, Russell Simmons, and many others.

This event is at capacity. Reservations are no longer being taken. Standby tickets may become available the day of the screening and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis on site. Please note: This screening will take place at the Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement House in Long Island City.
