THE WAVE – trailer

The Wave is a 5 part film series produced by South Side Weekly examining Chicago’s urban fashion scene. The film chronicles the history of Hip-hop urban fashion and its rise from the inner cities of NYC to the streets of Chicago. The Wave addresses issues like materialism and cultural appropriation while simultaneously telling the narrative of kids using fashion as an expressive outlet.
