A Collaboration Between

Project Synopsis

We want students to focus on the Sustainable Fashion Community Center. In this retail and networking space, we want students to help us further develop the co-working space and create an improved sustainable retail experience for our NYC FTC members and advocates and people of the East Harlem community. We also hope to build on the new subscription models. To help us out, students can get involved with marketing, social media management, etc. With students’ help, we hope to accomplish more community and member engagement.
