WHAT WE LOVE: Started as an Instagram page, Black Owned Everything is now an online marketplace to buy from independent black-owned businesses. Created, in the founder’s words, “to exist for when the trend is over” and to foster long-lasting participation between Black business, community, and excellence. Black Owned Everything invites black-owned brands to join the platform and grow the community.
WHO: Costume designer and stylist to Beyoncé and Halle x Chloe, Zerina Akers.

Some more Black-Owned shops
February is Black History Month, a time to remember and reflect. As ours is a website for sharing, celebrating and supporting independent shops we thought it appropriate to shine the spotlight on some more black-owned independent shops. Below are links to vintage shops and favorite shops we have previously featured. Simply click on images to be linked to features. To discover more independent shops and brands explore the lists from epicurious.com, Bloomist and others that we have shared in our February Notebook.
