Recommended Resource - Dapper Dan: Made in Harlem: A Memoir by Dapper Dan

This book, named one of the best books by vanity fair, expatiates on the story of Dapper Dan before and after he became a famous designer.

Although he now owns a legendary store on 125th Street in Harlem, before he reinvented haute couture, he was a hungry boy with holes in his shoes, a teen who gambled drug dealers out of their money and a young man in a prison cell who found comfort in books. In this remarkable memoir, he tells his full story for the first time.
