Do work, pitch work, make it work.
The main focus of the bootcamp is the design challenge. You’ll work in teams to elevate a creative concept — centered around a sneaker — and extended into other streetwear forms. Teams will concept, create and refine the elements of design util you’re ready for show time. Thursday’s pitch panel will give you the experience of delivering your dreams in front of a panel. The best part — the winning team will see their custom kicks come to life thorugh our collaboration with Ubiq and UBIQLAB!
