Last night, luxury resale site StockX gave New York City hosted a panel to unite different sectors of the fashion, sales and athletic worlds for a discussion about style and the state of the industry.
It was moderated by Taylor Rooks from Bleacher Report and it featured four major panelists: Nigel Sylvester, a Jordan-brand pro BMX athlete; Rox Brown, a member of the VFiles team; Racks Hogan, a professional reseller; and Dao-Yi Chow, co-founder of brand Public School.

The conversation centered around style and the power of clothes.
“Fashion is more so conformity where everyone is following a trend and you know how it goes. Everyone looks alike, it becomes a uniform,” Brown said. “Style is just being who you are and letting that show through. Your clothes are like your armor.
