Change Your Fate Clothing



$500 Grant Date

July 2018


An inspirational streetwear brand.

Take risks, work hard, and see every challenge as an opportunity.

Raul Perez lives by these mottos, and he created a clothing brand that empowers others to do the same. Change Your Fate (CYF) Clothing does just that: The brand is the inevitable result of the lessons Raul has learned, and a desire to promote these ideas that he lives by.

In an effort for growth, CYF Clothing has partnered with several local businesses, including Ambrosia Orchard and The Find Fort Wayne through pop-up shopping experiences. The brand also has an online shop, with over 50 pieces of trendy and inspiring clothing items available for purchase.

Raul’s goal is to create a brand that is simple yet iconic, a casual and simple reminder to people who put on his clothes that they are constantly working toward a higher goal. Ultimately, Raul hopes that through CYF Clothing, he can be in a position to pay it forward to the people who helped him get where he is today.
