Travis Scott proves to be an increasingly multifaceted artist. As we all know, one of the artist’s greatest passions is fashion, and following in the footsteps of Virgil Abloh, on the occasion of the third edition of Travis Scott Day which is celebrated in Houston, La Flame presented a series of initiatives to support education in the fashion world, right in his hometown. The project coincides with the launch of the Cactus Jack Foundation, a foundation conceived with the aim of training young talents.
