Basque Creative lead by Angelo Baque of Awake NY and photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis have announced plans to host a Social Studies event at Milk Studios in New York this week. A combined education, exhibit and retail pop-up event, Social Studies made its debut at Art Basel in Miami in 2017.
Events include education workshops lead by Jarvis, fashion creatives Melody Ehsani, Tremaine Emory of No Vacancy Inn, Sonya Sombreuil of Come Tees, Jess and Brian Procell of Procell, Brendan Fowler of Some Ware and Election Reform!, and Carlton Yaito of Yaito.
In addition to workshops, there will be a Social Studies t-shirt designed by designer Virgil Abloh that will be available to purchase throughout the duration of the event. All profits from the t-shirt sale will be donated to non-profit youth group Casita Maria, located in the South Bronx.
Additional merch includes a The North Face Nuptse jacket featuring the logos of the event participants. It will be sold exclusively on grailed.com on November 16, 2018 at 12:00 PM EST.
