EXCLUSIVE: Veteran Designer April Walker Re-launches Walker Wear

(AllHipHop News) Veteran clothing designer April Walker has revealed that she is re-launching her Walker Wear brand.

Walker Wear will be sold online and in upscale premium men’s retailers in the New York City area.

“It’s all about timing. Creatively, I’ve done a lot of fashion consulting and instead of constantly hearing the old adage ‘you should start your own,’ I decided to relaunch Walker Wear,” April Walker explained to AllHipHop.com.

April Walker launched Walker Wear in 1992.

The brand became extremely popular amongst the Hip-Hop community, since rap stars like Biggie Smalls, Tupac Shakur Wu-Tang Clan, Queen Latifah, Snoop Dogg and others sported the brand.

The latest incarnation of Walker Wear aims to bridge the gap between the Hip-Hop generations.

“I believe there is a disconnect between the new and old school lifestyle culture and I’m hoping to bridge the gap through the canvas of apparel,” Walker explained to AllHipHop.com.

Walker Wear will officially relaunch in the fall of 2012.
