March 2, 2023 Black-Owned Labels in Fashion
If you follow our Instagram feed, you know we share Black-owned labels there every Friday. If you didn’t catch them all last month, we have them here in one place for you.
HOME by Areeayl
HOME by Areeayl is a jewelry line of whimsical and imaginative pieces by designer @areeayl, who enjoys creating pieces in real life that she’s seen in her dreams. Scroll through their brand feed to see this vision in action!
Yam is a made-to-order, handmade jewelry brand based in Queens, NY, and founded by designer Morgan Thomas. The line is inspired by Thomas’ late mother, who introduced her to jewelry making at a young age, and the nostalgic (but modern) pieces are created with deadstock materials and vintage silhouettes. Check out the brand’s feed to see these playful pieces.
All eyes are on the eponymous label, LaQuan Smith. The designer has been a celebrity favorite for almost a decade, creating distinctive pieces and building an impressive global presence. Scroll the brand’s IG feed for lots and lots of glamour.
House of Aama
LA-based fashion label, House of Aama, is designed by a mother and daughter duo committed to 100% manufacturing in LA. The pair “explores the folkways of the Black experience by designing timeless garments with nostalgic references informed by historical research, archival analysis, and storytelling.” Take a look at their resulting designs!
This is just a sampling of all the Black-owned labels we’ve shared on our Instagram feed. Visit our feed to see even more, or join us back on our website next month when we’ll feature our March picks.
