Although New York Fashion Week is now long over, and we still have a few months to go before Summer, let’s be real – is there ever a wrong time to indulge our shopping habit? (hint: the answer is no!)

As we celebrate Women's History Month, off the heels of Black History month, we're giving the spotlight to Black women fashion designers who have been making contributions to the fashion industry, challenging norms and traditional standards and experimenting with an array of techniques, colours and patterns.  From bourgeoning independent labels to well-established brands, we can’t overstate that supporting Black designers not only contributes to economic empowerment within the Black community but also safeguards a space for Black creatives to thrive and feel confident about their craft.  

That being said, we’ve compiled a list of 10 Black-owned clothing brands from around the world to have on your radar this year!


Congolese designer, Anifa Mvuemba, has made her name in the fashion industry as the founder of Hanifa, an independent Black brand committed to inclusivity, representation and creating designs for women, without limits.
