Xavier Villaluz (Year 3) shoots photos for UPLFTRS

We got a head start on our future collaboration with Oakland-based, streetwear community + culture brand UPLFTRS.  Their latest Black History Month campaign features a "COMM[UNITY]" tee "dedicated to celebrating the brilliance of people of color every single day."  10% of all sales will be donated to the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD). Xavier Villaluz, one of our Year 3s, was the principal photographer for all of the images from this campaign! Check out some of our favorites here:
