We believe in creating a supportive and inclusive environment for artists from all backgrounds. However, we understand that systemic oppression against Black artists is stronger and more pernicious than against others, and so it is our responsibility to help them in any way we can.
That’s why we make a conscious effort to hire Black artists for our clothing designs when at all possible. Our goal is to not only provide these artists with opportunities, but to also make sure that they are paid equitably for their work.
Representation in the fashion industry matters, and we all have a duty to make sure Black artists are given the same opportunities and recognition as their peers. By hiring Black artists, we hope to create a platform for their voices to be heard and their work to be celebrated.
We also believe that supporting Black artists is more important than ever. The recent protests have made it clear that systemic racism is still a major issue in our society and that we must all take an active role in creating change. By supporting Black artists, we hope to be a part of that change and to help build a more inclusive and equitable future.
We hope that we can inspire others to follow suit and to support Black artists in their own communities and respective industries. Together, we can make a real difference and help to create a world where all artists are equally valued and respected.
