‘Not just a sneaker shop’: BAU-HŌUSE partners with a Detroit HBCU to bring design education to Flint
- by BAU-HŌUSE House
Flint, MI — A little more than one year into operations, the duo behind BAU-HŌUSE is making good on their promise to bring design education opportunities to Flint.
“I’ve been telling folks we’re not just a sneaker shop,” laughed Lee Allen Jr., co-founder and CEO of BAU-HŌUSE, which began as an art and streetwear pop-up location before transitioning in June 2022 to the apparel store, gallery and creative space it’s known as today.
Ever since, Allen explained, he and co-founder Antonio Forte have been looking for ways to bring fashion education to their hometown, and now the pair have confirmed a partnership with Detroit’s Pensole Lewis College (PLC) to do just that.
