Every Friday, we share Black-owned fashion brands you should know on our Instagram feed.  If you didn’t catch them last month, here’s a recap of the 5 brands we featured.

1. The OULA Company

@theoulacompany has all our attention. Who wouldn’t want this gorgeous printed dress for dinner parties and nights out? What a stunner! The company uses textiles that are sourced responsibly and creates its handmade pieces in the U.S. See even more standout pieces on their website.

4. Peju Obasa

We adore the eco-conscious crocheted mini belted bags of @pejuobasa. They can be worn many ways (we really like them across the chest), and this one in tangerine has us dreaming of a tropical winter escape. Shop their line on their website.

There is no better way to celebrate the New Year than with a beautiful piece of fashion, and Black-owned @parbrontelaurent delivers that beauty with this flawless piece.
