For the last year, Crossroads has been committed to putting Black-owned fashion brands in the spotlight. It’s a tough process to pick only a few favorites because there are so many to choose from!
We continue to feature brands each week on our Instagram feed, so be sure to follow along. Here are the 4 brands we featured in August:
1. Something by Sonia
The brand @somethingbysonjia is led by none other than @sonjiawilliams of Project Runway fame. We think she’s perfected the paperbag waist, as seen in her Nala Paperbag Short shown below. Visit the website here.
2. souk + SEPIA
Black-owned @soukandsepia is a stylish marketplace of curated products from around the globe, including clothing, shoes, accessories, and home décor. They ship directly from top factories around the world and pass along savings of up to 80% off original retail! Visit their IG feed to see more.
3. Tu Creative
Label @tu-creative is sold from an Etsy shop you have to visit. The label sells t-shirts designed and handmade in Memphis, Tennessee. Besides popular message tees like the one shown here, its sitcom reference tees are a big hit too.
@cise.store is an LA-based clothing line that’s been on a mission to create “stronger threads for a stronger community” since 2010. Their Protect Black People line shown here is a stunning example of their poignant and powerful pieces. Shop CISE here.
This blog post has put only 4 Black-owned fashion brands in the spotlight, but there are many more on our Instagram feed. You can also join us back here on our website next month when we feature our September picks!
