(PRO)ject US is a partnership between Donda’s House Inc., Chicago Public Library’s YOUMedia and Commonwealth Foundation. It is a hybrid fashion, music and media program where youth between the ages of 14 – 23 create apparel, music and media for established brands. Our professional partners include Leaders 1354, Sir & Madame and Kenneth Cole. In addition to the instructional component, we will also host trunk shows, fashion shows and other showcasing events to provide a platform for young creatives to engage the fashion, media and music industries.
