The Innovators From All Realms of Creativity in the Spotlight

HB100 consists of the most prominent names in today’s culture who’ve tremendously contributed to the progression of their respective industries and practices this year.

With a progressive 2019 coming to an end, it was important for our editorial and social team members here at HYPEBEAST to highlight and curate the 100 individuals who have made a significant impact in their industries. Fashion, music, art, business, technology and more are accounted for within this year’s populated list, along with their monumental achievements in creation, production, direction and conceptualization. Their creativity and talent thrive and prove boundaries are meant to be exceeded.

For 2019, we proudly present the HB100.
