THE PEOPLE'S PLACE PROGRAM
The People's Place Program is a three-pillared platform with an initial minimum commitment of $5 million in annual funding for the next three years that will seek to advance the representation of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) within the fashion and creative industries.
Inspired by our beginnings and moved by the present, the People's Place Program is our commitment to increasing equity, representation, and access for the BIPOC community through collaborations, storytelling, and mentorship.
Centering around Partnerships, Career Access, and Industry Leadership, the program seeks to achieve consistent, long-term change in the Fashion Industry.
The People's Place program is our way of amplifying the voices of the next generation of BIPOC creatives through our brand's global platform.
It is a program of true foundational change and action.
