HubSpot x NTWRK: The Grow Better Collection - Exclusively launching at INBOUND
[TL;DR] Tune in on the NTWRK App to shop the exclusive Grow Better Collection on Friday, 9/9 at 1pm ET.
HubSpot has partnered with leading livestream platform NTWRK for an exclusive fashion drop at INBOUND 2022 curated by Antoine Gregory, founder of Black Fashion Fair, a groundbreaking retail and editorial platform and community.
HubSpot’s mission is to help millions of organizations grow better by focusing on creating meaningful connections and building community. HubSpot has partnered with NTWRK on a series of collaborations this year that celebrate and provide a platform to artists, designers, and entrepreneurs who choose to grow better by pursuing professional success with a soul. The drops leverage NTWRK’s video-first commerce platform to make art in its many forms more accessible to a broader audience, and to raise awareness and funds for underserved communities. This drop during INBOUND, in partnership with Gregory and Black Fashion Fair, is designed to promote and help more people discover emerging Black designers.
Amy Marino, HubSpot’s Global Head of Brand Marketing, said, “Antoine Gregory’s Black Fashion Fair is a great example of a business that puts its mission at its core – and they’ve scaled while maintaining purpose. We’re inspired by Antoine’s accomplishments and excited to partner once again with NTWRK to co-create a one-of-a-kind collection that amplifies these talented designers and their stories.”
The exclusive collection features new designs by Antoine Manning (founder of Homage Year) and Nicole Zizi (founder of Nicole Zizi Studio), two designers who are growing better through their commitment to the environment, their communities, and their customers. The products include Antoine Manning’s signature Mini Ova bag in HubSpot’s solaris orange, Nicole Zizi’s iconic organic cotton logo hoodie with “grow better” detailing, and a custom one-of-one Nicole Zizi recycled patchwork denim jacket. All proceeds from the drop will be donated to the Brooklyn Sewing Academy, a program dedicated to addressing systemic issues in the design industry through education and training.
Here’s what the designers shared about how they relate to HubSpot’s grow better mission in their own lives –
“HubSpot’s grow better mission aligns with the work we’re doing at Black Fashion Fair which is to grow and accelerate the existence of black-owned brands but to do it in a way that’s real, that’s genuine, and that makes a real impact on communities.” – Antoine Gregory, Black Fashion Fair
“HubSpot's Grow Better Mission to me is a callback to my history, a callback to my past, but also motivation for the future. As long as we continue to keep trying, continue to keep moving forward, we can grow.” – Antoine Manning, Homage Year
“Grow Better resonates with me a lot as I'm always thinking about how I can personally grow as a person, as a human, being a better human being. And I'm always thinking about the evolution of my business and how it can be done better all the time.” – Nicole Zizi, Nicole Zizi Studio
