Dapper Dan Wins Harlem’s Fashion Row Lifetime Maverick Award
Legendary Harlem couturier Dapper Dan wins the Harlem’s Fashion Row Lifetime Maverick Award.
Oh, it feels so good to see Dapper Dan get his just due.
The fashion icon won the Harlem’s Fashion Row Lifetime Maverick Award on Tuesday.
Dan was totally surprised by the honor.
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.
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.
Dapper Dan is continuing to impact the fashion world with a new partnership with Gucci.
