Jordan Brand and Paris Saint-Germain are empowering young talent through the “Wings” program. Casa93 is one of the beneficiaries of this program whose proceeds from the capsule collection created by Léo Ciavarella and César Noyer will be used to support a set of long-term actions of the Parisian association.
Jordan Brand is always looking for ways to give back to the community and make a positive impact. Their “Wings” program, first initiated in Chicago and then launched in Paris, supports three Ile-de-France associations: Prométhée Éducation, Le Bal and Casa93, the latter being a professional training program that aims to allow everyone to enter the world of fashion. One of its initiatives is the Design Program, a textile design competition that offers its winners the opportunity to see their work marketed and to participate in the promotional campaign.
Last year, three talents from the fourth graduating class, Noémie Lalaire, Ange Trembleau Girondin and Kevia Mina, stood out with their unique creations inspired by the world of dance. This experience even led Noémie to do an internship at Nike’s European headquarters in Hilversum, the Netherlands.
This year, the “Wings” program took on a new dimension with the integration and support of Paris Saint-Germain. The club offered participants a reflection on its iconic slogan, “Ici, c’est Paris,” which resulted in two unique pieces – a hoodie and a long-sleeved t-shirt – created by Leo Ciavarella and César Noyer, who were inspired by the energy and chaos of the crowd at PSG games.
