The Remix: Hip Hop X Fashion is a quick but detailed overview of how hip-hop and streetwear influenced the fashion world. By interviewing major players in the game, the filmmakers provide an on-the-ground look at how Black fashion and expression challenged society and racial expectations. Even better: Viewers get a feeling of closure after seeing the unsung heroes of the industry get their time to shine.

The Remix is a great primer on the difference between appropriation and appreciation, a discussion that can be confusing for some. It also touches on gender politics, such as how female designers forged a path for themselves despite facing misogyny. Many who watch The Remix will come away with a greater understanding of and, indeed, appreciation for Black contributions to pop culture.
