Rokafella founded La Roka NYC to celebrate Hip-Hop's global innovations in fashion.  Fat Lace Earrings integrate the original look of "fat laces" (that is synonymous with early Bgirls and Bboys fashion)  and hoop earrings for this millennium. Wrapping hoops with the laces and other fabric is a way to honor the old with a new twist.
