The year was 1998 and the 90s chapter would soon come to an end then we were off into the 2000s. As we look back at how times have changed we must always remember the apex which was and remains the 90s.
Looking back at the way we were we take a deep glimpse into the lens of what Kentucky had to offer. Louisville, one of the most slept on cities has some of the most beautiful black Queens that deserve honorable mentions. How could we forget the largest city in Kentucky?
Kentucky sitting above the Ohio river just shy of the Indiana boarder has always produced fruit that was organic, soft to the touch and the texture was similar that sat upon the eyes who witnessed these queens take the stage.
The fashion in the 90s was top tier as we all know. The way the women wore the infamous Coogi goes unmatched. The black woman was then and remains today the anchor for this brand. When rap legends such as Big L and Biggie Smalls Rest In Peace made the brand popular it was always the women who made the brand stand out most in my eyes.
When they would roam in packs in the clubs, parties and other functions. Taking pictures in the finest Coogi from head to toe as seen above was an example of the way these women reigned supreme in this Avenue of fashion.
This was the culture. The “ living better now, Coogi sweater now” was the scripture the gatekeepers of this thing of ours would live by and those who were molding the chain link across state lines would lead accordingly.
Times when the women were natural, organic women reigned supreme throughout the 90s. These women today are still top tier Queens who aged like wine, divine women. No one is above the goddesses who wrote the blueprint in gold script. Second to none, competition is nonexistent.
The Coogi, was flawless, Money oriented Queens that reigned from the infamous Louisville Kentucky. A true stallion, ahead of her time to say the least. She never disappoints, Her archives were perfection.
Peace Queen. 💋
