This is the ultimate Chica Style by a reformed California Gangbanger. This work features the powerful Lati barrios as seen in the interviews, true stories, art and photos of the popular street zine, Mi Vida Loca. Cholo style continues to become incorporated as a matter of pride in the fast-growing Lati culture and, says The New York Times , is w part of the fashion vernacular of n-Latis as well . With over 150 photographs, illustrations and letters, the sharply designed Cholo Style presents the fast-expanding barrio culture from its most authentic perspective.
