Pritzker Fellow Rhymefest on "Fashion Forward"


(Current UChicago Students Only)


Wednesday, October 18

3:30-4:45 PM


In 2015, Che Rhymefest was included in the first cohort of a multimillion-dollar “Look Good, For Good” campaign launched by progressive activist and fashion icon Kenneth Cole to highlight community leaders as Role models who were the “Real Models.” Recently, the Chicago White Sox featured Ice Cube, Vic Mensa and Rhymefest in its “Fitted In Black” documentary about the cultural meaning, history and impact of the Iconic White Sox hat. Let’s dive into dialogue with Tim Brogdon, director of digital content for the Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bulls internationally renowned creative strategy and design advisor, Don C., as well as the man dubbed “God Father Of Sneakers” who’s designed for Reebok, Nike, New Balance and now heads “Ye’s” Donda Design, Steven Smith, about how fashion shapes our society and exposes our politics.


Special Guests: Tim Brogdon, Director of Digital Content for the Chicago White Sox, Don C. (via Zoom), Creative Strategy and Design Advisor for the Chicago Bulls, and Steven Smith, Head of Industrial Design at Donda
