As an industry, fashion is coming to the terms with its racist past. In order to create lasting change and build a more equitable future, it must hire people with more diverse backgrounds and amplify the voices of those who are too often overlooked. Below is a list of 200+ Black-owned brands to buy from now, and in the future.

Fashion

From streetwear staples to handmade garments steeped in African heritage, there is a Black-owned fashion brand for all of your apparel needs. As always, Black designers are continuing to push culture forward with new, innovative ideas. Designed by Central Saint Martins graduate Mowalola Ogunlesi, Mowalola pushes conventional womenswear boundaries by effortlessly melding the designer’s Nigerian heritage with maximalist glam. In May, Hanifa caught the industry’s attention with what many think will be the future of fashion week. During an entirely virtual fashion show, each garment appeared in 3D against a black backdrop in a show that perfectly leveraged technology and social media. Below is a list of 100 Black-owned fashion brands to watch.
