Industry people will tell you that fashion changes all the time, but that’s only a half-truth: most current trends are rooted in the retro.

The Fashion Spot went on a city-wide expedition, from 125th Street in Manhattan all the way down to Brooklyn, to find out how New York City women were doing exactly that. We focused on a few spots that have historically been centers of creative life and music in NYC, including The Apollo, The Village Vanguard, and Washington Square Park.
