Hey plus size babes!

As a blogger/designer/stylist/etc, I do a LOT of online shopping. And, one of my goals in 2018 is to step up my white allyship (Wells Fargo, we’re going to break up).

Black Owned Plus Size Fashion Brands

Below, I’ve shared a list of plus size boutiques and brands that are owned by black folks. I’ll be doing a post later on brands/boutiques owned by people of color, so if you know of a brand, give me a shout on twitter @The_Huntswoman or via my blog.

First up on our list of Black-owned plus size fashion brands is Christian Omeshun!  This plus size brand was founded by Atlanta-based designer A’Shontay Hubbard, C.O. is known for colorful pieces that make a STATEMENT, while remaining classic staples in your wardrobe (not an easy design feat to accomplish).

Because A’Shontay’s team makes everything in the USA, designs can also be customized for each customer — and A’Shontay offers fashion design consulting services, creating high end dresses for proms, weddings, or other special occasion.  [She’s been known to dress someone for the red carpet and design *all* the pieces for a wedding party!]

#3 Black Owned Plus Size Brand: Rene’ Tyler

Next up, we have a plus size brand based in Las Vegas, Nevada! Rene’ Tyler is a black owned plus size fashion brand, offering sizes 12+ and up.  Based out of Las Vegas, the fashion house is known for their stylish pieces that hug curves.

From the brand: “Angela Rene’ is CEO and Designer of Rene’ Tyler Plus Sizes 12 & Above. Angela’s love affair with fashion began at a very young age. She was influenced by her Mother and Grandmother, who taught her the fundamentals of sewing. Being surrounded by women with style, and her love of fashion she always knew she wanted to be a Designer. As a plus size woman, she found the selection of fashions to be limited and unappealing. She always wondered why the plus size department is always hidden in the back of the store, like the ugly stepchild, and why did contemporary, trendy and couture designs, stop at size 14? Her frustration to find fashionable and stylish clothing in her size, gave her the determination to create her own.”

One of the things I love most about @jibrionline is the FLARE that they give to their pieces. . In my previous post, I talked about using fashion as a way to trick the eye into thinkingI take up less space than I actually do IRL. . But JIBRI’s brand is all about taking up space. Like, look at the fabric going BEYOND my body. That’s not something you see in plus-size fashion. The zipper placement, dramatic tie in the back, etc —- this is a piece that you walk into a room and OWN IT, ya know?! Def one of my fave pieces in my closet. I wore it to @thecurvycon and people either asked me where I got it, or would knowingly nod and say “Jibri?” . The fit is amazing on their pieces, and this jumpsuit fits my long torso like a dream. ??I stared at it online for like, 10 months, before making a purchase and I freaking LOVE IT. Good pieces are worth investing in. Indie designers are worth investing in. Go get ‘em. . This post isn’t sponsored (but, like, feel free to call me @jibrionline ??). . ?: @lydiahudgens

#15 Plus Size Black Owned Brand: And I Get Dressed

Kellie Brown is a well-known creative cultural force and icon, and she owns her own brand!

Her site is currently under construction, and you can get a feel for her items on the dedicated Instagram page!

#16 Plus Size Black Owned Brand: PREMME

Unfortunately, Premme has closed their brand!  I am such a fan that I kept them on the list.  I definitely recommend checking Poshmark for their piecces!

Another of my favorites is Premme, whose co-founders regularly discuss politics, their support for Black Lives Matter and intersectional feminism. The brand is no longer producing pieces, but you can snag their pieces on websites like Poshmark. <3

Like a lot of plus-size babes out there, I’ve almost constantly had the @premme.us website up in one or more tabs. (Sorry for skewing your analytics!) . I saw babes of all sizes wearing this dress at @thecurvycon, and I WAS SOLD. The shoulders stretch allowing for ease of movement, and the length looks great on shorties like me and babes with LEGS. ??? . We’re obsessed with Premme because they have clothes that are fashion forward. Clothing that makes a babe stand out. It’s a political act to wear clothing that draws attention to your body, that communicates your right to take up space. Fashion is political. So, get that organza trench or culotte jumpsuit, and tag me when you rock it on insta. ??? . Also, this dress has POCKETS! . ?: @danielle.bex
