Elena Romero has covered urban fashion since the nineties. Her journalistic work in both trade and consumer publications helped legitimize an industry that once was considered a fad. As the author of Free Stylin,’ Romero tells the untold story of a multi-billion fashion phenomenon. Published by Praeger for release in Spring 2012, the book chronicles hip-hop’s transition from the hood to the runway; how race, ethnicity and culture played into commercialism; how celebrities impact the fashion industry; and ultimately what led major department stores to jump on the urban bandwagon.

Her book chronicles and examines how hip-hop changed the fashion industry and grew to be a $58-billion-dollar industry.
