Every February, we celebrate Black History Month, a time to honor the achievements and contributions of Black people throughout history. While it’s crucial to reflect on the past, it’s equally important to celebrate the present by supporting Black-owned brands, from fashion to beauty, that are thriving today.

The surge of Black-owned businesses has not been without its challenges. In an effort to highlight a diverse array of Black-owned companies, some familiar and others less known, we’ve curated this list of fashion and beauty brands worthy of support, both now and in the long run. Black History Month serves as an ideal occasion to shine a spotlight on these Black-owned brands, encouraging year-round patronage.
