“…In 2000, Hall started a gem sweater site [the Gallery of Glamore], where she archived a hundred self-portraits in which she donned different sweaters salvaged from thrift stores, “to celebrate their majesty.” The project garnered a wave of attention, and the subsequent profiles in publications like Vice, Bust and Paper magazines helped Hall cultivate a loyal following that she credits for pushing her to tackle her next big project: launching Leslie and the Lys, her hip-hop group.”Wired Mag
