Millennium Fellowship Project
The name of the project is It’s H.E.R Business. The project will entail creating message based denim jackets, who’s proceeds will benefit entirely women and youth. The idea it to upcycle materials, to raise funding for this particular demographic that is disproportionately affected by several global issues - including education, poverty, and violence. The projects success will be measured by having a pop up shop with over 100 attendees, as well as by hosting a benefit fashion show where 100% of the raised money will be going to a re-established school in Rwanda
