Bid on the chance to win a private atelier experience with Dapper Dan. This experience will include a private behind-the-scenes tour of his atelier in Harlem, New York, where you will get to work with Dapper Dan to design a custom piece of couture. This experience is best enjoyed in-person, however accommodations can be made to enjoy the experience virtually if so desired.

With his eponymous store on 125th Street, Dapper Dan pioneered streetwear in the early 1980s, co-opting luxury branding to design original garments with high-end detail. Known for using exquisite leathers, furs, and other fine materials, he first drew powerful New York City hustlers as clientele, who all came due to his strong street reputation as a legendary professional gambler and dandy. He then went on to outfit entertainers and other celebrities, including Eric B. & Rakim, LL Cool J, Salt-N-Pepa, Mike Tyson, Missy Elliott, JAY-Z, Beyonce, Aaliyah, P. Diddy, Floyd Mayweather, and many more. Dapper Dan has been featured on platforms including The New York Times, Elle, Vogue, W, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, CNN, and Netflix. His works have been on display at The Smithsonian, The Museum at FIT, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Museum of Modern Art. Dapper Dan’s boutique reopened in 2017 in a major partnership with Gucci. His memoir, "Dapper Dan: Made in Harlem" was released via Random House on Tuesday, July 9th, 2019 and is a New York Times Bestseller.
