    Within the UO Summer Class of 2022, a group of five exceptional HBCU students stood out for their academic excellence and creative brilliance. Bishr Burns, as the distinguished representative of Morehouse College, embarked on a transformative design journey to curate an exclusive UO capsule collection. This collection pays a heartfelt tribute to the distinctive culture and tightly-knit community of Morehouse, artfully centered around the theme of Black Americana.

    In Bishr's words, "As a beacon for my institution, I truly enjoyed depicting my life-changing experience at Morehouse through fashion design. I'm happy to see all my hard work come to light and experience the amazing reaction from my support system."

    Bishr seized the opportunity not only to showcase his boundless creative talents but also his discerning eye for design. The resulting collection eloquently conveys the spirit and identity of Morehouse through an array of products, including outerwear, shorts, shirts, and hats, all thoughtfully reflecting the distinct heritage that defines the College.

    Congratulations, Bishr. We can't wait to see what the future holds.
