MZ Wallace is proud to partner with Ashlee Muhammad — stylist, influencer and founder of the Harlem-based brand BeEyeConic — on a special rerelease of this limited edition design.
Proceeds from the sale of this bag will support the non-profit organization #TakeCareofHarlem, and Higher Heights Leadership Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to strengthening Black women’s leadership capacity and civic participation.
Through MZW Gives Back, our commitment has been to create equal opportunities through education and empowerment. But we know we can do more. We’re so excited to join forces with Ashlee for a second to time to turn that commitment into meaningful results that will have a lasting, positive impact both on our community and in the fight for equality in civic leadership.
