UNIFORM is a technology-driven streetwear company founded by award-winning social entrepreneur Chid Liberty, under the creative direction of platinum-selling rapper and fashion designer, A$AP Ferg.
The brand explores modern minimalist hip-hop-infused design while referring to long lost foundational elements of the culture including Afro-centricity and social justice. UNIFORM has collaborated with everyone from Shaq to Tiger Mom, Amy Chua.
With each purchase, UNIFORM's signature +1 program produces and donates a school UNIFORM to a Liberian child who otherwise could not attend school. According to research from MIT's Poverty Action Lab, donated school uniforms increase attendance by up to 62%, increase test scores by 0.25 standard deviations, and for every two young girls that receives a free uniform, two will delay their first pregnancy.
All UNIFORM apparel that is sold or donated is Made In Africa in order to provide jobs to working mothers in countries ranging from Liberia to Uganda. We measure our impact based on the number of children we support in furthering their education, the number of women we help to employ in ethical factories, and our general influence on fashion's culture in the movement from exploitation to sustainability.
