In tandem with Women’s History Month, NYC’s Port Authority Bus Terminal is hosting an exhibit that celebrates the contributions of women in streetwear.  

The exhibit, which is titled “Women in Streetwear,” will run throughout the month of March.  

“Streetwear is often assumed to be predominantly full of males, but there are so many women creating,” April Walker, the curator of “Women in Streetwear” and founder of the brand Walker Wear, said. “I want to pay homage and tribute to the many different game-changing women that continue to use their talents to shape culture through their vision, self-expression and passion. This exhibit is my love note to women in streetwear and to let the world know that we are not invisible and that this is our time.” 

The exhibit highlights work from Sharifa Murdock, Misa Hylton, Elena Romero, Samantha Black, Kianga Milele, Toni Scott Grant, Shara McHayle, Sophia Chang, and April Walker.
