To kick off Woman's Month right, we're highlighting the amazing work of a Fashion Icon!Misa Hylton has always been a prevalent, yet private presence in Hip Hop. Now, with nearly three decades of influence under her belt, the legendary fashion stylist is ready to reveal the wild ride that is her life story and legendary career.In our Women in Hip Hop segment hosted by Jazzie Belle, Hylton details the organic beginnings of her career; being ushered into the industry through her relationship with then-boyfriend Sean “Puffy” Combs, who was still a rising A&R at the time she was just getting her feet wet in fashion styling. Being in “the right place at the right time” garnered her opportunities to dress artists like Jodeci, Mary J. Blige, and Lil Kim, and connected her with late music mogul Andre Harrell, who pushed her to prove her passion and build belief in her innovative style decisions.Despite her early rise to success, Hylton reveals that there were definitely challenges she had to overcome as a woman in the industry. Namely, starting so young in the industry (only 17 years old at the time of her first gigs) and thus learning the ins and outs of entrepreneurship and financial management as she went along, and facing marginalization as a “hip hop stylist” among her high-fashion peers.follow us:@womeninhiphop@misahylton@jazziebelletvWomen in Hip Hop is a partner of the Double Elvis podcast network.
