Jay Z's Barneys collaboration has provided a financial windfall for The Shawn Carter Foundation. Find out how well the collaboration performed inside and watch the latest video from Beyonce's docu-series.
In spite of the negative press Barneys received after a racial profiling lawsuit went public, the store's holiday collaboration with Jay Z was an overall success. According to the NY Daily News, The Shawn Carter Foundation will collect OVER $1 million in profits thanks to sales fom the luxury clothing line Jay Z helped launch six weeks ago.
Back in October, Jay discussed the project and what he planned to do with proceeds saying, "This money is going to help individuals facing socio-economic hardships to help further their education at institutions of higher learning."
Congrats to the SC Foundation....they'll be able to bless many college students this year.
