Description

Please join the Schomburg Shop as we host a trunk show with eco fashion brand Reformed School. Designer, Peter Gaona, will be present at the Schomburg Shop with a variety of unique pieces from Reformed School available for purchase.




Reformed School

Ecofriendly and Socially Conscious Handmade Goods



Chicago native, Peter Gaona, is a dancer-turned-designer and owner of the five-year-old online retailer ReformedSchool. Peter established ReformedSchool after retiring from performing while completing his degree at Columbia College Chicago in Arts Entertainment Media Management.


ReformedSchool’s Mission: “Utilize eco-fashion to educate and spark conversation about the environment as well as history and social justice in style.”


ReformedSchool bow ties, lapel pins and wearable art are all made from repurposed vintage fabrics, leathers and recycled plastic bottles. They are designed to shine a spotlight on both social justice and African Diasporan history.
