In the spirit of empowering female designers, the popular athletic retailer Foot Locker is using a new platform to bring awareness to those often overlooked in the industry. That platform? Behind Her Label, a national initiative launched by Foot Locker that’s designed to elevate and provide resources to the next generation of female designers. Through product development and inspirational storytelling, Foot Locker’s main objective with Behind Her Label is to bridge the gender gap in streetwear design and give talented female designers a jump start in their fashion careers.
“We are excited to shine light on three extremely talent designers to launch this program, creating exclusive products that will ultimately drive sales for each designer to grow and reinvest into her respective brand,”said Alexis Stoll-Scigliano, Director of Marketing, Foot Locker Women in an official press release.
For their inaugural year, Foot Locker and Behind Her Label have chosen three emerging female designers to create an exclusive streetwear collection while simultaneously highlighting their creative journeys. Those designers, Shana Sadegghi-Ray, Amanda Litzinger and Olivia Anthony, worked with Foot Locker to create exclusive capsule collections that were influenced by their love of basketball and streetwear culture.
In support of this launch, Foot Locker and Behind Her Label will showcase each designer’s creative journey, the inspiration behind their designs and what it means for them to partner with the brand on such a groundbreaking initiative.
