FINAL HANDPRINT OUTPUTS BY OLU

In 2016, this brand was founded with the intention of bridging the gap between fashion and social justice. This was done through meticulous research, purposeful storytelling, and community building. Five years later, because of the constant support you all have shared, we are an established business rooted in highlighting Black stories, both past and present. While out main goal was to leave a genuine impact on our community, over the last five years, you all have left an equal impact on us.

For us, that is what "prgrssn @ 5" represents. Five years building community. Five years of building a brand. Five years of leaving an imprint on the same community that has left one on us. Thank you for growing with us the last five years. We look forward to the next five with you.

Enjoy the exhibition.
