SWOB x Xhibition Capsule Collection
Shooting Without Bullets x Xhibition are pleased to present: “inhale/exhale”
In the Fall of 2020, Shooting Without Bullets (SWOB) and Xhibition began an experimental collaboration, employing SWOB’s creative model to design a capsule collection exploring themes of uprising. To conceptualize the designs, members of the SWOB Artist Collective participated in a design workshop hosted by Xhibition and facilitated by SWOB leadership to process the protests for racial justice experienced by SWOB members on May 30th, 2020 in Cleveland, Ohio. In this gathering, they utilized the time to translate their perspectives into design concepts that reflected their viewpoints on uprising. Over the course of the collaboration, these young artists developed a deeper understanding of how to take socially conscious apparel design from concept to market, as they participated as both makers and models.
