As with many grassroots cultural movements, street wear has been notoriously difficult to define. While under a constant state of evolution of style and creative direction (as with many street trends), one constant has been the types of clothing produced, commonly centered on “casual”, comfortable pieces such as jeans, t-shirts, baseball caps, and sneakers. New York’s Fashion Week is known for its high fashion designer collections, and TriBeCa is quickly becoming a major player in the fashion scene. Tribeca Urban Arts & Music Showcase 3.0 will allow lifestyle brands to be a part of the NYC fashion Week experience, while providing many more components than just the typical “runway show”. Invites are going out to all the top fashion boutiques in the tri-state area, professional athletes, recording artists, celebrities, bloggers, entertainment industry insiders and taste-makers .
Gallery 69 is home to both Graffiti Art New York dot com and X101Jamz.com, and over the last year the network and gallery have been featured on International-HipHop.com, Global Good Networks, SoulTrain.com, Time Out NY and countless other blogs and media outlets. Gallery 69 houses thousands of pieces of Urban art from some of the top street artist in the world that include; Crash, Futura 2000, Quick, Blade, COPE2, RD357, STAYHIGH 149, T-Kid , TAKI 183, CornBread, Seen, TRACY168, KING BEE NIC 707, Duro, Sonic, LA 2, Duster and countless other street art pioneers from the early 70’s and 80’s that are documented in history books as style masters of the culture. TriBeCa Urban Arts & Music Showcase 3.0 will be remembered in the Urban Culture history books!
