TOGETHER FOR A CAUSE

Tommy Hilfiger launched the People’s Place Program to advance minority representation in the fashion industry. Together with The Fashion and Race Database, we are telling stories that have gone unheard for too long.

FASHION IS EVERYONE’S HISTORY

The podcast is possible thanks to the extensive research of The Fashion and Race Database. Reader-supported, our powerful mission is to amplify marginalized voices and decentralize the narrative of fashion history.
