It’s sometimes easy to forget that hip-hop isn’t merely a music style, but also a fashion aesthetic. Of course, these looks don’t create themselves. Meet Misa Hylton and April Walker, two women who have had an incalculable impact in the male-dominated world of hip-hop style since the 1980s. Working with rap luminaries like Missy Elliot and Mary J. Blige, these women have helped chart the course of hip-hop’s journey, from its New York origins to its global impact.
