February is Black History Month, and with every purchase you make at a black-owned business, you are telling the world that it matters to support these businesses. There are SO many black clothing brands out there with beautiful, high-quality products and a great mission to empower people of color. Not only will you be supporting these brands if you purchase from them, but you will be providing opportunities for young Black entrepreneurs, designers, and employees.
Here is a list of five black-owned, fashion brands that are killing the game. These companies are run by people who aim to empower others and make a difference.

By doing this, you will help close the racial disparity gap, aid in job creation and hold larger companies responsible on issues related to lack of representation.
