Every February, we celebrate a special holiday. And no, I’m not talking about Valentine’s Day. I’m referring to the 28 or 29 days we dedicate to honoring Black History Month, our nation’s way of showing respect and recognition for the hard work of and sacrifices made by African Americans. A great way to show you love and support is by shopping the amazing Black-owned fashion brands below. They all focus on sustainable fashion — Sustainable fashion is a movement and process of fostering change to fashion products and the fashion system towards greater ecological integrity and social justice.

Autumn Adeigbo: Colorful and Conversational Ethical Fashion.

Grant Blvd: As a truly sustainable, ethical brand, Grant Blvd works on behalf of what’s good for people & what’s good for our planet. How? By sourcing reclaimed fabrics, by manufacturing exclusively in Philadelphia, and by supporting incarcerated & returning citizens. Why? Because it’s time to recalibrate our systems.

beRESONANT: beRESONANT features brands that create inclusive, vibrant, and sustainable clothes. It doesn’t hold any inventory; rather, every item is made only after purchase, so nothing ends up in landfill or incinerated. Its manufacturing facilities use less dye, water, and raw material than traditional processes, meaning their products have a smaller carbon footprint. In addition to this, the team runs the beRESONANT Accelerator, helping talented, under-represented creators build viable fashion businesses.


Jade Swim: Jade Swim is a sustainable swimwear line using both deadstock fibers and ECONYL, regenerated nylon from plastic waste such as fishnets taken out of the ocean and remade into new nylon fabric. Inspired by New York City and made in Los Angeles, the brand combines both minimal and sensual aesthetics that can easily transition into ready-to-wear.
