Black Owned Fashion brands

Black Owned Fashion brands

Fashion has always been an outlet for creatives to express themselves. Along with our complexion, the clothes we wear are the first things that people see and form an opinion off of. Sometimes that perfect suit can give the confidence needed for that big interview or meeting. For those who are embracing their heritage unapologetically, those African and Caribbean inspired garments send the perfect message. Here are a few black owned brands that embody every expressive avenue.

The BFyne experience is meant to leave you inspired and empowered.

GRASS-FIELDS

Grass-fields, biggest inspiration is their African heritage and love for self-expression through clothing. This inspiration manifests itself in the form of vivid, eye-catching and contemporary African print dresses that can be worn casually, for a night out, or for formal events.

This project is all about us embracing our opportunity to do something different, by bringing together African textiles and western style – a combination of the two worlds we live in.
