The Bronx is the birthplace of hip-hop culture. This New York borough has literally and figuratively been on fire since the 1970s. Violence, poverty and discrimination are everyday realities. This place gave rise to a ‘do-it-yourself’ culture where originality and credibility are key. Creativity is the essence of hip-hop and fashion is a connecting element. Even though you may have been born a pauper, you can still look like a million bucks. The exhibition ‘Street Dreams. How Hiphop took over Fashion’ shows the looks, the codes and the creative power of hip-hop. The pioneers who inspire the fashion houses, the hypebeasts who camp outside stores for days, and the artists who are in the front row at fashion shows.
