"Women in hip hop fashion don't always get the light or credit we deserve,” observes April Walker in this excellent documentary. Because hip hop is seen as a male dominated genre, often the contribution of women in hip hop fashion goes ignored. “The Remix: Hip Hop x Fashion” explores the challenges experienced and the impact made by stylist Misa Hylton and fashion designer April Walker. This film highlights these women, along with cultural influencers Kerby Jean-Raymond and Dapper Dan. Their looks styled hip hop’s greatest artists, influenced music videos and created a visual conversation that not only challenged society but made it recognize hip hop had more to say. — T.
