Harlem sets trends. The world follows suit. #itsa212thing

Harlem legends, A$AP Rocky and Dapper Dan, star in AT&T’s new short film chronicling "Uptown" street style. Dapper Dan who has gone from the tailor of Harlem to collaborating with one of the most prestigious fashion houses in the world, Gucci, schools Rocky on the streetwear game.

The film is a progression of AT&T’s first-ever (212) Day — an event dedicated to celebrating the heritage and influence of New York’s 212 area code as well as Harlem street style — and a roundtable discussion moderated by Fab 5 Freddy, featuring A$AP Rocky, Dapper Dan, and Teyana Taylor with designer Jerry Lorenzo. During the roundtable, this group of insiders detailed Harlem’s impact on fashion.
