Phoenix is a student-led project aimed at creating a sustainable, awareness-based clothing platform within the Champaign Urbana community. We have established workshops in which we work with local high school students who don’t have access to quality art education in their districts, providing them with resources to help kickstart their own creative projects. We work together to create individual brands with waste-free and upcycled designs that are then launched to the public through a local clothing swap called Karma Trade, with profits going directly back to the creators themselves. Our goal is to initiate collaboration among high school students in the community and offer them a program to explore their career interests.
