What is the cost of being addicted to the experience of Streetwear? One of our talented contributors, Charlie Kane, is determined to find out—and educate—about the viral phenomenon that has helped resurrect Streetwear. Inspired by her “How Much Does It Cost To Feel Like Pablo?” op-ed originally published on The Hundreds, Charlie is holding a TEDx Talk called “Long Live the Hype” at Wabash College in Indiana that you won’t want to miss.
The experience will go down this Saturday, January 21 at 5 p.m. CST, and will also be live-streamed for those who can’t make it. RSVP here to join in live, and follow Charlie on Twitter @GIRLTWEETSWORLD to find out more details about how to stream the event as it happens.
“In his TED talk, “The Origins of Pleasure,” Paul Bloom explains that expensive, luxurious products and exclusive events are experienced in a heightened way, and has been proved to give us pleasure. How much we are willing to consume and pay for culture?”
