Spelman women have once again shown that they are stronger together.

Shortly after the launch of The Polo Ralph Lauren Exclusively for Morehouse and Spelman Colleges Collection, the full capsule of clothing nearly sold out. Several items in the collection are no longer available online. However, limited items are available in select Ralph Lauren stores in Atlanta, New York, and Los Angeles while quantities last.

As you know, the collection seeks to honor the history of both schools and widen the aperture of Ralph Lauren’s storytelling. Using images from the Spelman and Morehouse archives as inspiration, Ralph Lauren enabled a Spelman alumna and Morehouse alumnus, Dara Douglas and James Jeter respectively, to assemble an all Black creative team to create a powerful, boldly conceived collection.

Even more importantly this collaboration gave us an opportunity to support student success.

From scholarships to our students being involved in the branding campaign, to a business relationship that yielded earned income, our partnership with Ralph Lauren represents the type of commitment from American business that helps the College continue to remain accessible for students across the country.

The RL Company is also actively facilitating career pathways for Black talent by deepening internship, recruitment, mentorship, and development programs. These efforts include reserving dedicated internship offers for HBCU students and expanding talent acquisition relationships with HBCUs beyond the traditional recruiting season.

Thank you again for making this partnership successful.
