The Commonwealth Fashion Fund is designed to be a catalyst platform for young designers to help them launch their brands. Outside of the financial reward, a Fashion Fund winner receives mentorship. The current Commonwealth Fashion Fund winner is Rashard Feggins and his brand is DXSTRXCT7.

Commonwealth Foundation is proud to share with you the first products from one of our 2015 “Shine Your Light” Fund winners, Sherrion Jolly. The Shine Your Light Fund is designed to help promote emerging creatives to an audience and demographic wider than their own direct network.
Sherrion, a light hearted songstress, was a participant in our inaugural season of PROjectUS. Through her dedication to her craft and the program, she was name a 2015 Shine Your Light Fund recipient. This Cliche music video was produced by Commonwealth Foundation, directed by student turned Visual Media Coordinator – Brandon Towns.
