New Concepts 012: Black_Space—Harris Elliott on Creating "Culture Without Compromise"

Nordstrom has a new section in there stores called Black_Space.  This section of the Nordstrom store has curated designs from black brands. Harris Elliott who is featured in this video and is a creative director out of London and one of the 5 curators of the Nordstrom Black_Space.  In this video he field questions around his taste and where he draws inspiration from.  During the video he references a jacket from the brand Exhibit69 which uses hand painted graphics to give tribute to the late rapper MF Doom using Marvel artwork as a reference. I really enjoyed this video and getting to know Harris and his perspective a bit more.  Being as my parents are from Jamaica and my grandmother spent the majority of her life living in England I really appreciate hearing his perspective and am definitely going to look for more content from him.
