New York Fashion Week is a place to show transformative fashion for the following year and generation. Carmelo Anthony is applying this to his Propel label with the help of 7 different designers from the black community in fashion and creative arts.
Tier NYC, Ghetto Gastro, Shakira Javonni, The BK Circus, Demestik, Does it Even Matter & Barriers Worldwide were enlisted by Anthony to create a piece from the Spring-Summer 21 collection that honors their unified perspective of the Black movement.
The Propel collection is the inaugural capsule for Carmelo Anthony’s STAYME7O Propel Program.
This is where Melo and his associates reimagine the creative spaces and cultural landscape for diversity and the underserved, starting within the fashion industry.
A passion for creative style, NBA forward is focused on invigorating Black culture through fashion and design. Anthony is tapping his creative starting lineup to create in a liberated spirit that promotes Black excellence and upward and onward mobility as a community.
A future told through the vision of these 7 designers and artist are what the collection features in the graphic designs for each piece.
With the help of chef trio Ghetto Gastro, streetwear and fashion visionary Ouigi of The BK Circus, as well as Barriers Worldwide, an organization focusing on exploring lesser-known cultural revolutionaries, Anthony is fostering unity amongst the fashion and design community with a singular goal.
The Propel Program is about the movement towards change and setting goals to get there. This installation of their first streetwear collection is only the beginning of an entire social reform initiative.
Carmelo has global views of change in mind championing emerging artists to help define a future that includes everyone.
