Our renewed collaboration with Tate Modern is based on a shared philosophy of Made for All, a concept echoed in LifeWear, clothing designed to help make everyone’s daily life better, and in giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy art. My hope is for many families to get involved in the UNIQLO Tate Play program.”
