Black fashion designers work across the spectrum of fashion, even if they are sometimes pushed into the realm of streetwear, regardless of what they’ve made.

By no means an exhaustive list, the brands here showcase the sheer breadth of design, from brands who actually create streetwear to runway-ready luxury fashion (which was often still mislabelled as streetwear).

It’s important to note for the context of this list: While there are definitely some high profile designers featured on this list, we wanted to try and give the spotlight to those who might be lesser-known to a casual audience.

This is not to say we’re not fans of the Virgil Ablohs, Jerry Lorenzos and Kanye Wests of the fashion space (we most certainly are), but we want to surface new perspectives as much as we celebrate those that have already established large bases of support.

Furthermore, this list is not exhaustive. We actively encourage readers to search these designers out for themselves, on top of supporting other BIPOC designers, creators and brands. If there's any labels you think we missed or that you want us to shine a spotlight on, mention them in the comments below!
