Now more than ever it is our duty to support the Black community and, as a fashion site, we vow to be a resource for you. From the smallest start, like following Black fashion influencers, to greater efforts, like shopping and supporting designers and brands that need business, we can encourage change within the fashion industry.
One of the first questions I had was “where can I donate?” I’m happy to see that a lot of fashion designers, houses, and labels are taking first steps, not only to pledge a donation but to share with followers how much they are willing to give and especially where they are dedicated to sharing a portion of their funds. It’s important to note that a lot of the businesses listed here, all of which are considering ways to help, have been deeply affected by the COVID-19 crisis and continue to struggle. By shopping from the brands listed ahead, we can help these companies sustain their finances while also contributing to the Black lives matter movement through their platforms.
Read on to check out the pledges we’ve gathered, and please send an email if you’re aware of other brands that should be included on this list.
