Off-White announces the launch of its “I Support Young Black Businesses” project, a quarterly fund-raising program in support of organizations chosen by Abloh and his team.
Off-White will release exclusive items with all proceeds going to the organization they select in the quarter. The first products are T-shirts and hoodies with the phrase “I Support Young Black Businesses,” with proceeds going to Chicago CRED, an organization created to reduce gun violence. Abloh has been in partnership with the organization since 2017.
Off-White is also launching a new paid internship program in Milan this September for young Black people who want to establish a career in the fashion industry.
