Beyond the Bling

Hip-hop fashion is not just flashy clothes, banging accessories, loud colors and blinged-out jewelry. It encompasses so much more than those things. It is self-expression and an artform. Graffit, music and the everyday life experiences of individuals are the canvases for its creativity. It is life's ups and downs all wrapped up in to an awesome design with a comfortable fit.
