CLOSING THE GAP
May 12th - May 26th
Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are the launching pad for achievement and generational resilience in the black community. They provide an inclusive and nurturing culture for black students to call "home" while exploring their identity, talents, passions, and career paths. ICON360 and Gap Inc. are partnering to curate 'Closing The Gap'; an initiative supporting HBCU Fashion Departments Funded by Gap Inc. 'closing the Gap ' provides financial awards to deserving HBCUs that encourage black students to innovate and push the needle forward in the world of fashion.
HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) often lack funding, which restricts students from learning skills and techniques that keep them ahead of the creative curve. ICON360 and Gap Inc. have partnered to 'Bridge the Gap' between HBCUs, funding, and the next generation of fashion leaders.
