I’m a child of the 80s. I love old school hip hop. Shell toe Adidas, bamboo earrings, graffiti writing, gold chains. Hip Hop defined fashion for African American culture.
One of the workshops that I plan to hold will be to create a pair of hip hop inspired graffiti jeans based on the child’s hobbies, passions, and personality.
Hip Hop Fashion Workshop-In this workshop, students will create a one of kind pair of graffiti jeans popular in hip hop fashion of the late 1980s and 1990s. Students will brainstorm about who they are when no one else is around. Students will think about visual representations of their personalities, use the Internet to print images and use iron on, paint, fabric markers, patches, etc. to create a pair of specialty jeans. Students will also create a mood board w/ illustration to go along with the jeans they create.
