The Harlem streetwear designer turned retro icon never expected this.
Probably because he never set out to fit into the fashion world and now, the iconic fashion designer – who defined 1980s hip hop – has the fashion world coming to him (and it’s not just because he is friends with A$AP Rocky).

Dapper Dan just won the Harlem’s Fashion Row Lifetime Maverick Award in New York City. As he told Page Six: “It’s something I never expected, and that’s pretty obvious by the fact I never tried to penetrate the fashion industry,” he said.
“I had absolutely no connection to the structure of fashion, so it was something that I never expected. But . . . I feel great about it now — more so for what it does to people of color, for people behind me.”
