If you haven’t been supporting artists of color, now’s the time to start shopping Black-owned clothing brands. There’s something for everyone on this list whether you’re into high-fashion gowns, streetwear, or ready-to-wear-looks, you can find it all from these designers. Here are some black-owned clothing brands to start supporting.
Worn by Rihanna, Beyonce, and Winnie Harlow, this celebrity favorite is great for high-glam looks to show off your curves. LaQuan Smith isn’t afraid of bold fabrics like leather, animal print, and crochet and daring silhouettes that bare a lot of skin.
Christopher John Rogers
At just 26, the designer from Louisiana was highly sought out at New York Fashion Week in February 2020. Michelle Obama, Tracey Ellis Ross, and Cardi B have worn his bright, unique pieces that fit perfectly into the neon trend.
Obviously the queen of black-owned brands Rihanna is on this list. Her accessories are out of this world and we’re living for the sunglasses and gender-neutral clothing sets.

Nichole Lynel’s NL the Label is the fresh take on denim we’ve been waiting for. The denim is unlike anything we’ve seen before and her cargo pieces are equally as stunning.
Accessories add a layer of dimension to any outfit, taking it from drab to fab and these woven bags with fringe, bright colors, and shell details are perfect for any summer look. The bags are handmade in Haiti.
