Drew Henderson brings confidence to everyone (including the NBA stars) who sit in his chair at Chicago's No Cuts, No Glory. His signature tee and hoodie designs reflect the old 1988 transit tokens as an ode to the last time Chicago hosted the NBA All-Star Weekend.
Co-founded by Chance the Rapper, Essence Smith and Justin Cunningham, SocialWorks aims to empower young people in Chicago using the arts, education and civic engagement. To illustrate the spirit of Unite, the students of the organisation designed the tee and hoodie to include the SocialWorks iconic compass logo that represents people of all races coming together.
Chicago's Queen of Denim made her mark through customised, unisex designs for celebs like Bella Hadid. She now brings her skills to a sneaker and apparel collection that's tailored to the Second City. Photos on the apparel were taken personally by Rashid to speak to the city's youth and support of small business.
Four students from Chicago's WINGS Design Programme lend their diverse skills to a collection that reps their hometown's famed grit and architecture. In pure Chi-Town style, the apparel elevates the Green Line, while paying homage to the iconic MJ Wings image, and the footwear unites all 8 colours of Chicago's train lines.
Lyrical Lemonade began in 2013 through the vision of music director Cole Bennett and partner Jake "JB" Brode and grew to highlight Chicago's young musical talent through the full Lyrical team. The footwear and apparel inspired by the Pink Line speak to the Lyrical Lemonade motto: "Global now, Chicago forever".
