FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Pastor Anthony Payton of Come As You Are Community Church in Fort Wayne launched his Anthony Payton ‘BE SPOKE’ suits Sunday.
He already has a shoe line.
The proceeds from the suit and shoe line help a student who also wants to be a designer to travel to Brazil to see the whole process of production.
"Our goal ultimately is to take a group of African American inner city kids, men particularly, boys particularly, and give them a summer in Brazil where they will design a shoe. We'll come back and decide on which shoe is the best of the design. No tennis shoes. All dress shoes. We will put that shoe in production and take a portion of those proceeds and put them toward their education, a local charity of their like, and the other third will go toward the furtherance of the program itself," Payton explained.
