Clothes and fashion are universal, but the fashion industry is one of the least diverse business spaces. Several talented black designers do not get the same opportunities as others.

A LVMH fashion house only appointed its first black head designer in 2018. Consumers have the power to make a change in fashion’s lack of diversity. Here are five black-owned fashion brands you can support.

Brother Vellies


This brand is owned by one of the best shoe and accessory designers in fashion. Aurora James founded Brother Vellies with a desire to preserve the African design process.

This brand’s items have a signature look and feel, but are easy to pair with anything in your closet. We recommend that you grab a pair of their famous fluffy slides!

Ama Nwoke


Ama Nwoke has a collection of brightly colored statement pieces. These bold garments are so versatile that even the woman with minimalist preferences will want to shop their attire.

The brand follows a signature tailored aesthetic that is excellent for work-wear and a night out. There’s also a great selection of trendy, youthful clothes for a more fun dressed up but casual vibe.

Christopher John Rogers


Christopher John Rogers’s looks can be spotted from a mile away. The designer and CFDA/Vogue fashion fund winner has made his mark in fashion.

Many celebrities wear his garments on red carpets and magazine spreads. His eclectic style and use of neon fabrics draw every fashion lover’s attention.



Rihanna’s brainchild Fenty is the first black-owned brand housed under the LVMH luxury conglomerate. Her brand has a wide variety of items ranging from sunglasses and shoes to dresses and outerwear.

Most would have to save up a little bit to buy a statement piece from Fenty, but it’s so worth it. Fenty also has an extension of more affordable lingerie pieces at Savage x Fenty.

Telfar Global

Telfar Clemens founded his brand Telfar Global as a way to make luxury more accessible to black people. We can’t get enough of their popular shopping bag that many fashion icons have been wearing. The Telfar bag has been dubbed ‘the new Birkin’ by many.
