As protests intensify across the globe from the atrocities in Nigeria to the much needed outrage against the senseless killings of black people in the United States, there has been a corresponding interest in supporting black-owned businesses; starting in the US but spreading quickly to Europe and across the globe. This movement to further black economic interests is very important, so we are taking the time to spotlight brands we have profiled in the past who are run black-owned businesses.

Please don’t hesitate to donate to organisations like Stand to End Rape, Mirabel Centre Fresh Start for Farishina, Gianna FloydReclaim the Block If you’re interested in learning more on how you can help specific causes, you can find out more here and here.

We have always been firm supporters of black and African fashion brands and will always continue to do so. In honour of the extraordinary talent on the continent and beyond, we’ve compiled a list of multiple black-owned and African fashion brands you can show love to this weekend! This is by no means an exhaustive list and we will continue to update it. Ahead, all the brands you need to shop now and beyond!
