Many of our students graduate and continue to pursue their passion
for retail with great success.

Jameel Mohammed (C17) is the Founder, CEO, and Creative Director of KHIRY, an Afrofuturist luxury brand. He is a recipient of the inaugural ICON360 x A Common Thread Grant by Harlem’s Fashion Row. The $1 million grant program is supported by the CFDA, Vogue Magazine, and Tom Ford. The fund was created during the pandemic to support and empower BIPOC fashion designers.

“So humbled and excited and (honestly?) a little scared at the scale of possibility this opportunity presents. Thank you to our entire community of supporters and the KHIRYCorps folks who have been there from the start. Watch this space! The best is yet to come.” Jameel Mohammed (C17)
