What you'll do
We will start our experience in Mott Haven, South Bronx. First stop is a high concept hip-hop gallery opened by Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) and Set Free. We will experience the high art of hip hop (depending on the hours) or a grafitti art gallery founded by a member of one of the most famous crews, TatsCru, Crash One. Afterwards, we will walk under gritty bridges to see iconic graffiti by the world's best artists. Next we will visit a graffiti covered boutique that carries original souvenirs and Bronx apparel and is often visited by famous Bronx rappers like Fat Joe. On some nights, the shop features a DJ and has a block party. Lastly, we will walk through a neighbourhood of lofts and warehouses to a secret speakeasy where we will be totally immersed in a music and fashion experience by way of vintage hip hop. I will also invite you to have authentic Latin snacks if you are interested. You will experience the South Bronx neighborhood through by way of graffiti, hip hop music and authentic New York culture. Total walking area is a 3 block radius. Some of the activities may change based on venue schedules.

I grew up looking at high fashion magazines but my passion for hip hop allowed me to have high profile jobs in the music/fashion industry. After graduating from FIT & Parsons School of Design, my first job was at the famed Hip Hop Magazine named BLAZE as an assistant fashion stylist. I was a concept designer for graffiti artist (and founder of Complex Mag), Marc Ecko’s brand. I landed my first head designer job with Hip Hop royalty, Rev Run’s daughters brand Pastry. After learning tricks of the trade, I founded the brand SAINT CHIC. We created the 2014 viral sensation: the Paparazzi Visor™️
