SPECIAL GUEST & Keynote speaker pioneering urban fashion designer April Walker. April Walker became an entrepreneur at 20-years old. Walker Wear was founded around 1991, but Walker had already owned a custom shop in Brooklyn called Fashion In Effect after being inspired by Harlem designer Dapper Dan and Black high fashion designer Willi Smith of WillieWear. Walker was ahead of the game, making clean, custom pieces for new money rappers that wanted deeper front and back pockets and longer crotches in their jeans. April Walker along with Karl Kani was one of Tupac's favorite designers and provided the clothing for Above the Rim, the 1994 film.
