LEARN ABOUT THE FUTURE OF FASHION
We teamed up with My Brother’s Keeper to hire young Black men this summer to earn while learning about the business of fashion.
Each week the interns learned about design, technical design, sourcing, materials, suppliers, styling, merchandising, marketing/branding, innovation, and more. Interns had the chance to engage, ask questions, and document their learning in their program workbooks.

Education is invaluable and we believe that the learning never stops. We seek to provide learning experiences throughout all that we offer.
Making is a pivotal part of any process that requires attention and dedication to ensure that the product delivered is at its best. With our Production & Design Labs, we seek to support Columbus creatives with work spaces equipped with industry grade equipment.
Innovation can be defined in many ways yet all with the same conclusion- to reinvent or rethink the way in which things are done. Fashion is an industry that is constantly asking “What’s next?” in trends and style but it is our goal to extend that question into all areas of the industry.
How we experience things is rapidly changing from the shift in how retail is experienced to the high demand for safety precautions. Now more than ever, creating an experience for our consumers has become the key of a successful brand. We are dedicated to help our artists curate incredible fashion experiences for their audiences.
