Artis Solomon is an education consultancy that provides academic and creative solutions towards a more intelligent fashion system.

The education that’s required...is a long game. It requires learning some things and unlearning some things. It takes visionary thinking and courageousness.

– Artis Solomon Founder Kimberly Jenkins, speaking to Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Robin Givhan in “Fashion’s Racial Reckoning” (The Washington Post)

Who We’ve Worked With
