The Seasons Creative Project

We invest in Black, Latinx & other underrepresented creatives exploring the intersection of art, culture, and fashion. Each Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer, one recipient will receive a grant of $7,500 and access to our team, network, and platform to help them continue creating. Summer 2020 applications are now open until July 17th.

The purpose

We're a team of immigrants, dreamers, and builders from around the world. We believe that representation matters and that true innovation happens when you bring together a spectrum of perspectives, experiences and cultures.

We look to empower other underrepresented creatives within our industry and community by supporting their ideas and uplifting their voice. Beyond the grant, we'll invest in these creatives by leveraging our team, network, and platform to help build their vision.

We're looking for people that align with our team values:

1. Sustainability
We aim to reduce consumption, recycle raw textiles, and maximize the number of times our garments are worn.

2. Transparency
We're committed to talking about the issues within our industry, holding ourselves accountable to change, and maintaining open dialogue.

3. Perspective
We strive to always include and embrace a wide range of perspectives to better inform product, design, and content.

4. Community
We want to create real relationships with members and bridge the communication gap between fashion and social.
