The new couture fashion spread Now Trending in the August 2015 Fall Fashion issue of W Magazine is a deconstruction of Harlem iconic gear that set the standard in the 1970’s.
The statuesque models pose in an homage to the strong, stone-cold beautiful and bold actresses of 1970’s movies “Claudine,” “Coffy”, and “Foxy Brown.” The models style and profile in Harlem gear from Bell Bottom pants, wide collar coats, to Apple hats, Platform and Pilgrim shoes.
