• UO Happenings: Connor Franta's Common Culture Comes to Herald Square

    "What's going on?" curious shoppers asked as enthusiastic screams made their way through the ground floor of New York City's UO Herald Square location. Hundreds of fans held phones high above their heads reaching to get a shot of the entrepreneur they'd been waiting hours to see: Connor Franta. The third in a series of four tour stops celebrating the launch of Connor's Common Culture + Urban Outfitters collaboration made its way to New York following an exciting Giving Tuesday launch in Los Angeles and follow up in Austin. Now online and in select stores (which you can find here) the five-product line includes a tee, crewneck, hoodie, and hats with all proceeds benefitting GLSEN, a nonprofit ensuring safe and affirming school environments for LGBTQ students. To show his appreciation, the collaboration's spearhead, Connor joined us at UO Herald Square in New York City for a meet-and-greet with fans. Re-live the excitement, hugs and cutest gifting moments here.

    Emotions were running high and many of you needed to catch your breath afterward! 

    Hugs, selfies and hand holding were all the rage. No shortage of poses to strike here.

    The beauty of a before and after shot.
