Editor's note: This post was originally published last year. Since our support for black-owned brands is forever, we thought we'd update any sold out products to make shopping for the latest and greatest from some of our favorite designers easier.
But what if you are an individual? You can put pressure on these big retailers by contacting the company or commenting on their social posts. You can also consider spending 15% or more of your personal fashion spending on black-owned brands.
It's also important to note that the financial impact of COVID-19 has generally hit black-owned brands harder than others, as illustrated in the chart below Mona Chalabi. This New York Times Opinion article "How We Spend Tells Us Whose Life Matters" addresses one of the causes, stimulus package inequality. If we are to think about positive economic changes for the black community in the longer term, it is crucial to support these companies now so that we don't lose them due to financial difficulties associated with the pandemic. With that in mind, here are some of our favorite stores in the Fashion category. Shop for one when you can and when you can't, bookmark it for later knowing your purchase will satisfy more than just your shopping habits.
