Walker says the partnership with Gucci was a dream come true.
Tommey Walker, Founder of Detroit VS. Everybody said, “They’re all gone. They’re on stock-x now for about $2,500. So it’s a collector’s item now. I was very excited about all the work we have done that we had done up until that point. You know, it really felt to get the validation from one of the brands that we’ve been studying. Do you know what I’m saying? One of my favorite brands, literally.”
A part of the proceeds will go to the Gucci Change Maker Initiative.MORE NEWS: Police Seek Driver Who Hit, Killed Black Bear
