A few have wondered about what the short film even has to do with Proenza’s collection, or fashion at all. We say the pop cultural references are all around us. We can easily point to examples of the modern Black American starlet. Recent images of Rihanna, Keri Hilson, Kesh, and even Beyonce, exhibit the hard, extreme/trashy edgy, bad girl.
