10% For Equality

With a firm belief in equality for all, we work toward a world where we all have access to the education and resources necessary to pursue our dreams. To help create this world, we dedicate 10% of profit to equality and education programs.

Our current equality partner is the ‘Speak Truth to Power’ human rights program by Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights; which teaches youth around the world how to speak out against injustice.

Our current education partner is She’s the First, which provides scholarships to girls in low-income areas and developing countries so they can be the first in their family to graduate.

We're committed to giving back on a local scale as well. 

In the 2016-2017 school year, we partnered with High School of the Fashion Industries (HSFI), a New York public school where 76% of the students live below the poverty line, yet 91% of students graduate and 82% continue on to college. 

At HSFI, we taught workshops, sponsored a design competition, brought entrepreneurs & industry leaders to the school for a panel discussion, and donated product.
