Sacha Jenkin’s Fresh Dressed takes the audience through the history of hip hop fashion. Opening with cotton plantations before progressing to the early days of New York hip hop in the seventies, and, finally to the global stage and shopping malls across the globe.

From graffiti decorated jackets, baggy trousers, classic sports wear, bespoke designs, and more, hip hop has always been at the forefront of fashion.

Fresh Dressed tells the story of hip hop fashion, but it also looks at the music, the culture and the politics, about the need for individual expression and group identity and those who sought-out, wore and designed the unique looks that have defined the genre in all of its forms.

This documentary features some great archive material – notably the old school footage of NYC in the seventies – and features contributions from many of the biggest names in hip hop.

Fresh Dressed offers an essential history and joyous celebration of street fashion.
