Otherwild is an amazing brand that is located out of Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Berks runs the graphic design studio that creates one of a kind shirts. One top that has received attention reads, “El futuro es femeninx” literally translates to “The future is female.” The product description explains in further detail “In an attempt to be more inclusive of all genders we have placed an “x” instead of an “a” or an “o.” Nonetheless, the “x” also defies the idea “el futuro” or the future is masculine.
Since “el futuro” is masculine its correlation would be “femenino,” the “x” not only implies that it is female, but it also implies that it is an inclusive female future. Lastly, it also implies that male dominated spheres such as language are being defied by sheer existence of the phrase.” Every top that is purchased, a proceed went to Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement, an organization for LGBTQ individuals within the Latin Community. How awesome is that?
The brand Farai first hit the scene back in 2010 in Brooklyn, NY. The brand prides itself of an ethical lifestyle that focuses on people, product, and planet. Their brand includes African Artisans while using sustainable practices and materials. Instead of following the latest trends, Farai walks to the beat of their own drums. They prefer quality and creativity and leaves each consumer happy and coming back for more. Farai clothing items can last for years, by using environmentally friendly items and sustainable fabrics.
Aerie is the front-runner of leading the brands that support women. Many times social media places pressure on women to look a certain way. Aerie is one brand that promotes body positivity and since 2014, the brand has refused to Photoshop its models. The movement touched their shoppers, and Aerie saw an increase in sales immediately. Body shaming is never ok, no matter what size you are! We appreciate Aerie for representing the true woman’s body and all of its loveliness!
Curvy Beach is a plus size brand that is taking the world by storm. One fashion designer specifically, Elizabeth Taylor noticed the limited number of bikinis in store for Plus size women. Majority of swimwear lines only sold designs that were “flattering” for women who were fuller. That lead Elizabeth to wonder who said plus size women couldn’t rock a string bikini? No one, that is. The newest plus size bikini start up is being raved about all over the place and is here to stay!
