Black-Owned Clothing & Jewelry Brands that Should Be on Your Radar

The gruesome death of George Floyd has sparked global outrage and protests. It has also brought to light the long going history of mistreatment of black people in America. While donations and petitions are one way to show solidarity with your fellow brothers and sisters, another way is buying from black-owned businesses.

There have been many occurrences where the high fashion world has taken the ideas of small business owners, specifically black fashion designers. The high fashion world remains lucrative and their clothes fly off the racks, while small black-owned fashion and jewelry lines suffer. This is why it is crucial for us to start supporting fashion and jewelry lines created by black people.

I have comprised a list of black-owned clothing and jewelry brands that we can all support. I have listed a $ under each instagram picture to indicate how pricey the clothing lines are. The more dollar signs, the more expensive.
