Choclo Project are currently in Peru designing the SS14 collection, and getting to know the kids at the Mundo de Ninos centre. Their goal is to nourish their natural talent by teaching them new techniques so that they can keep growing creatively. Up until this point the kids had only designed on paper so this was an opportunity to allow them to draw on an object of value. They were nervous initially doubting their ability to do the board justice. After Choclo got the ball rolling and encouraged them they let loose and the result was amazing. And now they have people coming up to them all the time, telling them how awesome the design on the board is. When they tell them it was done by ex-street kids, no one can believe it. The most important thing is the feeling of importance it gives the kids knowing that their imagination has real value.
