UNIFORM to Launch 'Go Back Give Back' Pop-Up Shop in NYC Featuring a Live Performance by Davido 7/28

Join UNIFORM Thursday at Bloomingdale's for an interactive shopping event to launch their menswear capsule collection at the Go Back Give Back pop-up shop.

A new clothing line manufactured on the continent while simultaneously doing good lands in Bloomingdale's 59th Street flagship for a menswear pop-up shop that you don't want to miss. Join UNIFORM Thursday, July 28, for an interactive shopping event to launch their menswear capsule collection at the Go Back Give Back pop-up shop.


UNIFORM produces its garments by working mothers in Africa's first fair-trade factories in Liberia, Morocco and Kenya. For every purchase made, UNIFORM donates a school uniform to a child in need. Where in Liberia, for example, only 30 percent of children are in school, 98 percent of the children of UNIFORM's employees are enrolled. These mothers are stakeholders in the business—where the working mothers own 49 percent equity in the company—and receive living wages, free health care, 100 percent savings matching and literacy classes.

From 6:00-8:00 p.m. at The Lab (Lower Level), the launch celebration will include a special live performance by Nigerian recording artist, Davido, music from DJ XPect, live art by Moosh as well as bites and refreshments by Juice Press and Sigmund NYC. Customers who make a UNIFORM purchase of $100 or more will receive a special gift of Shea Moisture shaving supplies plus personalized wrapping in a UNIFORM gift box.

In addition to UNIFORM, the charitable “back to campus” pop-up shop features philanthropic brands TOMS and STATE Bags, supplying sharp looking wardrobe essentials including, shoes, eyewear, backpacks, chinos, collar shirts, tees and more.

The Go Back Give Back men’s pop-up shops run through September 1st in Bloomingdale’s 59th Street flagship, Huntington, San Francisco, Roosevelt Field, Century City, Stanford, Beverly Center, SoHo, Santa Monica, and on www.bloomingdales.com.

Featuring Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga, Alpha P, Davido and many more.

It has been more than 30 years since the premiere of the beloved classic comedy Coming to America. Its highly anticipated sequel promises to be greater than its predecessor. The film will be accompanied with two albums—Coming 2 America original motion picture soundtrack and Rhythms of Zamunda, whose tracklist is inspired by the movie. Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.

Still blazing charts after the success of his debut album Old Romance, Tekno has a growing list of impressive collaborations with artists like Davido, Drake, Beyonce, to name a few. The singer does not have not one, but two of his hit songs featured; "Waka Waka" is featured on the official soundtrack and "Skeletun" on Rhythms of Zamunda.
