Urban Outfitters just dropped a special 24-piece capsule collection designed by graduating students of its UO summer class of 2021 internship and mentorship program, in collaboration with three Historically Black Colleges and Universities—Howard University, Clark Atlanta University, and North Carolina A&T State University. The students—U’lia Hargrove, North Carolina A&T State University; Jasmine Logan, Clark Atlanta University; Jalen Bradford, Clark Atlanta University; Janae Claxton, Howard University; Dacia Redmond, Clark Atlanta University were chosen for their participation due to their academic excellence and creative prowess.

“Being able to share our resources with HBCU talent, and to work alongside these students creatively as they developed their own product, made Summer Class enriching not only for our students, but for every UO employee who got to be a part of the program,says Dalila Shannon, UO Women’s Divisional Merchandising Manager, and Summer Class Mentor.
