My Beautiful Fluff
Brittany Washington started My Beautiful Fluff as a way to embrace her journey back to natural hair. During the transition, she wanted a t-shirt that demonstrated beautiful, colorful afros. When she found them, they only went up to 3X or were men’s shirts. This led to Curvaceous Curls. After remembering the affectionate nickname her mother gave her — Fluffy — Brittany made Curvaceous Curls the first design under My Beautiful Fluff. The brand carries sizes from L to 5XL and features designs meant to help women love and embrace themselves.
Founded by Nigerian/Austrian immigrant Larissa Muehleder, her eponymous brand is instantly recognizable through her neoprene designs. The inventive designs of this New York-based brand fit well into the fashion capital of the world.
